MUMBAI: Christo­pher Bran­cato, the showrun­ner and cocre­ator of the hit Amer­i­can crime-drama se­ries Nar­cos, will con­duct a mas­ter­class here. As part of its plans to cre­ate ground-break­ing con­tent for the Jio plat­form, Sid­dharth Roy Ka­pur’s RKF has in­vited Bran­cato to In­dia to con­duct a spe­cial mas­ter­class on cre­at­ing, writ­ing and di­rect­ing orig­i­nal se­ries. Bran­cato is be­ing ac­com­pa­nied by Ca­role Kirschner, the Di­rec­tor of the Writ­ers Guild of Amer­ica’s showrun­ner train­ing pro­gramme. The mas­ter­class ses­sion will start from Mon­day in Mumbai and will be at­tended by an in­vited se­lect group of writ­ers, film­mak­ers, pro­duc­ers and showrun­ners. The work­shop will fo­cus on cre­ative de­vel­op­ment for high qual­ity se­ries, and shar­ing best prac­tices in im­ple­ment­ing the showrun­ner and writer em­pow­ered model. This is Ka­pur’s step to­wards build­ing a strong foun­da­tion for a ro­bust cre­ative writ­ing sys­tem in In­dia for the Jio Orig­i­nals plat­form set to launch next year. ”It is al­ways good to learn from the best in the busi­ness and ben­e­fit from their ex­pe­ri­ences, es­pe­cially when one is try­ing to forge new paths and break es­tab­lished norms,” said Ka­pur in a state­ment.
