About The Indian Detective

THE INDIAN DETECTIVE, a classic fish out-of-water story with equal doses of comedy and high-stakes drama, follows Toronto cop Doug D’Mello (Russell Peters) as he becomes embroiled in a murder case while visiting his father in Mumbai. The investigation leads Doug to uncover a dangerous conspiracy while dealing with his own ambivalence towards a country where, despite his heritage, he is an outsider. The four-part, one-hour, comedy-drama stars global comedy sensation Russell Peters in his first starring scripted role for television, and was filmed on location in Cape Town, Toronto and Mumbai.
