Lionsgate Play’s latest original show, Gamer Log, is a coming-of-age sitcom set against the backdrop of competitive E-sports.

Produced by Abhinay Deo’s RDP Pulp Fiction Entertainment, the series will see the filmmaker don the hat of a showrunner. The production house is headed by Deo and Neeta Shah.

Gamer Log, which has been created by Karmanya Ahuja, will follow the adventures and misadventures of a team of professional gamers.

This will be the platform’s third original series after Hiccups & Hookups (Season 1, 2021) and Jugaadistan (2022). Rohit Jain, managing director South Asia and Networks - Emerging Markets Asia at Lionsgate, said, “This announcement reiterates our mission to bring compelling stories and new content to viewers across the globe. E-sports is a booming industry in India; 350+ million online gamers were recorded last year, and it’s an upward growth from here. Gamer Log will essentially showcase the lives of these very gamers. We look forward to working with Abhinay and Neeta on a show that will be funny, youthful and mainstream.”

Mrinalini Khanna, vice president of Originals at Lionsgate Play, said, “Gamer Log embodies the exact principles of content coming out of Lionsgate stable – innovation blended with entertainment. The series is placed in an enthralling universe but has the classical challenges of a coming of age.”

Deo revealed that he was thrilled to be partnering with Lionsgate Play for Gamer Log. “E-sports in India is growing in popularity with each passing year, but that’s an untouched subject in terms of entertainment,” he said. “With Gamer Log, we plan to tap into an unexplored world, bringing audiences a story about friendship, camaraderie, hopes, dreams and ambition.”

Deo’s production partner Neeta Shah said Gamer Log is a unique concept with peculiar characters who are quirky yet extremely relatable, managing internal dysfunction and navigating the competitive world of E-sports with comedy, drama, entertainment and a lot of gaming. "Abhinay and I believe that Lionsgate Play’s ethos works best for Gamer Log – it’s a story for the mass with an innovative thought. I’m glad that Rohit and Mrinalini are in complete sync with our vision of the show," she said.

The makers will be unveiling the show’s cast and release date in the coming months.
