Former General Hospital: Night Shift head writer Sri Rao has signed on to write a new family drama for Netflix. According to Deadline, the show will star Bollywood legend Madhuri Dixit.

Not many details besides Dixit's casting have been announced, but Deadline reports the series will be based on the lives of entertainers. Rao and Dixit previously worked together on an ABC pilot. Rao will also serve as showrunner, while creative producer Karan Johar's Dharmatic Productions will helm the series.

Dixit will also star in the upcoming Netflix thriller flick August the Fifteenth, also produced by Johar. She said:

I’ve been working in films for decades now and facing the camera has always been one of my greatest joys. But this is the first time I’ll be working on a series, and I’m both excited and nervous. It will be a completely new experience, because while you have to be judicious when telling a story on film, you have the luxury of time in a series.
