Over-the-top (OTT) platform ZEE5 is coming up with a new web series based on Ruskin Bond’s ghost stories. Titled Parchayee—Ghost Stories by Ruskin Bond, it will depict 12 of Bond’s popular stories.

"Whenever I run out of people to write about, I cook up a few ghosts or they appear before me. I am happy that my stories are coming alive for the first time on a digital platform and I look forward to watching them. I hope my readers will enjoy the series," Bond said.

Produced by Banijay Asia and Opus Communication, the show’s first episode will premiere on January 15, following which one story will be released each month till June.

The first four episodes, based on stories The Ghost in the Garden, The Wind on Haunted Hill, Wilson's Bridge and The Overcoat, will be directed by VK Prakash and Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury.

Manish Aggarwal, Business Head at ZEE5 India, said, "We are introducing a fresh concept with an edgy and mysterious theme for viewers. Through this, we will be attracting a new set of audience to the platform, loyal readers who have grown up on a staple diet of Ruskin's books. The show is set to take the twisted game of secrecy, thrill and mystery to a whole new level and drive engagement with 12 fascinating tales."
