Naveen Andrews Comedy Series ‘The Pradeeps of Pittsburgh’ Ordered at Amazon Freevee

Amazon Freevee has given a straight-to-series order to “The Pradeeps of Pittsburgh,” an eight-episode series inspired by the life of showrunner Vijal Patel.

Naveen Andrews stars in the ensemble comedy as patriarch Mahesh Pradeep. “The Pradeeps of Pittsburgh” follows the Pradeep family and the humorous events of their first

few months after moving to America from India. As told through often conflicting flashbacks from an interrogation room, the Pradeeps quickly find themselves embroiled —

romantically, personally, and professionally — with a polar-opposite neighborhood family.More from VarietySofia Helin, Shelley Conn, Kevin McNally, Jason Wong Join Season 3
