‘The Three Stooges’ Set for Indian TV Revival (EXCLUSIVE)

Larry, Moe and Curly are face-slapping and eye-poking their way to India.

U.S.-based C3 Entertainment’s iconic Vaudeville comedy franchise, “The Three Stooges,” is set to be adapted for Indian television. With a working title of “Three Stooges Bole Toh Hungama Ho Gaya,” the Hindi-language series is being developed by Mumbai-based Galani Entertainments.

A broadcaster has yet to be identified for the show, whose title translates into English as “When You Say ‘The Three Stooges’ You Mean a Laugh Riot.”

Galani Entertainments is linked to Vijay Galani Moviez/Film Folks, whose credits include Salman Khan vehicles “Veer” and “Suryavanshi” and “Ajnabee,” starring Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor. New talent will be cast in the roles of Larry, Moe and Curly.

The original comedy trio featured in some 190 film shorts from 1934 to 1958, with U.S. television syndication beginning thereafter. “The most appealing factor for recreating ‘The Three Stooges’ in India is the universal appeal of the boys’ comedy,” said producer Pratik Vijay Galani of Galani Entertainments.

“This is the perfect time to extend ‘The Three Stooges’ franchise in India to the 1.3 billion population,” said Earl Benjamin, president of C3. Television is the largest component of India’s media and entertainment industry, growing at 8.5% a year and valued at $9 billion.

Separately, C3 is currently developing the family feature “The Three Little Stooges.” Also in the works is a follow-up to the 2012 “The Three Stooges Movie” with Sean Hayes, Chris Diamontopoulos and Will Sasso reprising their roles as Larry, Moe and Curly.
