The two are shown teaming up to apprehend the titular ‘Queenpins’ for masterminding a one-of-kind scam. Gaudet and Pullapilly directorial also stars Joel McHale, Bebe Rexha, and Stephen Root.
The writer and director duo says, “We know that India is in a phase that has seen the depiction of some of the best scams over the OTT platforms and the success of these series has been phenomenal. We take that as our welcome mat into the Indian entertainment market. ‘Queenpins’ takes couponing to new heights and we are hopeful that it will be the kind of story that sticks with the country. We are thrilled about the response to its trailer.”
‘Queenpins’ is slated to release in September worldwide.
