Director Parmeet Sethi said “Whether it be work or entertainment, we spend almost all our waking hours today in front of a screen of some kind. Unfortunately, every screen is also a potential crime scene! Today’s criminal does not put a gun to your head and rob you; instead, he just clicks a key on a computer!

The series portrays the journey of a ragtag cyber crime task force that sets about cracking cyber crime cases in our country. This anthology of cyber crime cases tackles different types of hacking methods used by cyber criminals and is inspired by the true life cases documented in the books authored by renowned cybercrime investigator Mr. Amit Dubey. The team consists of strong characters played by Vipul Gupta, Riddhi Kumar, Akash Ayyar, Akhil Khattar, Sajjad Hussain Khan and others.”
He further added, “The Friday Storytellers team has endeavored to bring to life the technicalities and nuances of these cyber crimes and also to keep it simple and understandable for the uninitiated. With Amazon miniTV as our partner, I am confident it will resonate with the audiences worldwide and hopefully even educate them in the dangers that lurk behind our screens.”
