Karishma Tanna, best known for the soap opera Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi and Rajkumar Hirani’s film Sanju, headlines the first season of Scoop which will track the story of crime journalist Jagruti Pathak.

“In pursuit of a career-defining story, Jagruti Pathak is caught between the powerful nexus of the police, the underworld, and the media, when she is charged with the murder of a fellow journalist. How does a headline-writing journalist become the headline?” the official synopsis read.

The story of Scoop, billed as a human drama, is penned by Waikul and Mirat Trivedi.

The series also stars Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, Harman Baweja, and Prosenjit Chatterjee.

It is produced by Matchbox Shots, Sarita Patil, and Dikssha Jyote Routray.
