'THE ANARCHY' SERIES
ON EVIL EAST INDIA COMPANY
While we wait for A Suitable Boy, Singapore Grip, Black Narcissus and Far Pavilions, the work on another exotic series has been announced yesterday:Siddharth Roy Kapur, the president of the Producers Guild of
India, has bought TV rights to THE ANARCHY: The Relentless Rise Of The East India Company, epic novel by William Dalrymple! Spanning more than 200 years, the 2019 best seller describes how the infamous East India Company rose to prominence against the decline and fall of the storied Mughal Empire. It provides a remarkable account of how a provincial trading start-up, run by thirty people from an office only five windows wide in a nondescript London building, became rulers of an entire sub-continent; in the process establishing the richest and most powerful empire in the history of the world. Kapur is currently in the process of finding a mix of Western and Indian writers for the series.
