Hat Trick brings improv to India

Company to pitch 'Whose Line Is It Anyway?' to networks

Hat Trick Intl., the distribution arm of Blighty’s Hat Trick Prods., has partnered with India’s Miditech to bring improvisational half-hour “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” to the subcontinent.

The venture will expand the brand across TV and live-event platforms.

Headed by brothers Niret and Nikhil Alva, Miditech is well established in India, having brought “Survivor” and “The Voice” to the country. Miditech will pitch the show to Indian broadcasters and aims to get it on air next year.

Hat Trick Intl. also distributes BBC gamer “Have I Got News for You” and Showtime’s “Episodes,” with Matt LeBlanc, among other content.
