Views from the Edge

Indian American actress Melanie Chandra is teaming up with Insecure writer and producer Amy Aniobi to create a new  series for HBO.
Chandra wants the project, titled Attachment, to give a more authentic insight into the world of Indian Americans.

The series tells the story of a first-generation Indian American tech CEO who’s forced to share her tiny New York City apartment with her mother, who’s considering a divorce. The two learn to live with each other — and for themselves.

Chandra, best known for starring in Code Black, will be a consulting producer for Attachment.

“You have NO idea how thrilled I am to finally share this with the world. Dear friend and powerhouse @janiobi and I just sold a show to HBO!!! Over the last 2 years, we’ve been quietly plugging away,” Chandra posted on Instagram. 

“We dreamed of creating a series built around an Indian American girl, female ambition, and the complicated relationships between immigrant moms and their first gen kids. We poured so much of ourselves into these characters and the world we created,” she wrote.

Produced by Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine, according to the publication, no release date or casting has been announced.
