Mumbai : "Sex, Drugs & Theatre" that celebrates Marathi drama to the fullest was announced on November 5, which marks the occasion of Marathi Rangbhumi Day -- the celebration of Marathi theatre.

The 10-episode series will go on floors soon. It will be streamed on ZEE5.
"Our aim is to create content that will revolutionise the digital space for Marathi audience. 'Sex, Drugs & Theatre' is a cool, youthful and vibrant show, something quite different from what the audience has seen so far," Manish Aggarwal, Business Head, ZEE5 India, said in a statement.
