It's A Sin Review: HBO's Series On AIDS In London's LGBTQ Community Does Little For Its Fearless CharactersIt’s
A
Sin
Review:
HBO’s
Series
On
AIDS
In
London’s
LGBTQ
Community
Does
Little
For
Its
Fearless
Characters

The
series
recently
started
shooting,
under
the
production
company
Matchbox
Shots.
According
to
Netflix,
“Scoop” is
a
character
drama
that
traces
the
journey
of
Jagruti
Pathak,
an
ambitious
crime
journalist.

“Her
world
comes
crashing
down
when
she
is
charged
for
the
heinous
murder
of
a
fellow
journalist,
Jaideb
Sen
and
ends
up
in
a
prison
cell
with
those
she
once
reported
on.
The
others
charged
include
a
notorious
sharp
shooter,
a
nefarious
bookie
and
the
infamous,
Chhota
Rajan!
The
truth
is
quietly
buried
as
she
waits
out
a
trial,” the
official
logline
read.

Mehta,
known
for
helming
acclaimed
projects
like
“Scam
1992”,
“Shahid”
and
“Aligarh”,
said
when
he
read
Vora’s
book,
he
was
“compelled”
to
bring
the
story
to
life
on
screen.

“We’ve
already
begun
filming
and
I’m
excited
about
this
story
being
my
first
collaboration
with
Netflix.
Great
stories
can
only
benefit
from
a
service
that
can
make
it
reach
a
wider
set
of
audience,
‘Scoop’
is
that
kind
of
a
story
and
with
Netflix,
we
will
be
able
to
take
it
to
audiences
across
the
globe.

“With
my
co-creator
Mrunmayee
Lagoo
and
producers
Matchbox
Shots,
I
am
seeking
to
delve
deep
into
a
tale
of
our
mediatised
times
and
the
human
cost
of
stories
that
we
consume
on
a
daily
basis,” the
filmmaker
said.

Sanjay
Routray,
producer
at
Matchbox
Shots,
said
when
they
first
read
the
book,
they
knew
that
the
“inspirational
story
of
grit
and
courage”
needed
to
be
told
on
a
wider
medium.

“Netflix
was
the
obvious
choice
for
us
because
filming
it
as
a
series
gives
us
the
opportunity
to
nuance
the
characters
and
their
emotions
further.
For
a
tale
with
such
a
gut-wrenching
narrative,
only
a
mastermind
like
Hansal
Mehta
would
be
able
to
do
complete
justice.

“He’s
a
natural
when
it
comes
to
bringing
such
hard-hitting,
real-life
stories
to
life.
Honestly,
our
collaboration
with
Hansal
and
Netflix
just
aligned
seamlessly,
and
it’s
the
perfect
combination
for
stellar
storytelling,”
he
added.
