Banijay Asia to adapt BBC thriller The Tourist in India through All3Media Int’l deal

Jamie Dornan plays an Irishman in the Outback in The Tourist

Banijay Asia has picked up the rights to adapt BBC mystery thriller series The Tourist in India.

The company agreed a deal with All3Media International to adapt the series, which was created and produced by All3Media-backed UK prodco Two Brothers Pictures.

All3Media International and Banijay Asia, part of the French production-distribution giant, said the new series will “retain the thrilling essence of the original while infusing cultural elements unique to India.”

The original version of The Tourist stars Jamie Dornan as an Irishman seeking to understand his dark past after he wakes up in an Australian hospital with amnesia after a car crash.

It was written by Two Brothers founders Harry and Jack Williams, who also created Rellik and Boat Story. Two Brothers produced the show alongside Adelaide-based Highview Productions.

Season one of the series debuted on the BBC and Australia’s Stan in January 2022 and two months later on Warner Bros Discovery-owned streamer Max in the US. The second season premiered earlier this year. In the US, it was dropped by Max and moved to Netflix for the second instalment.

For Banijay Asia, this marks the latest high-profile adaptation following local remakes of The Night Manager, The Trial and Call My Agent Bollywood.
