Jamie Dornan’s acclaimed series ‘The Tourist’ is getting an Indian adaptation. Banijay Asia has acquired the rights from All3Media International, the distributor of ‘The Tourist,’ as reported by Variety.

Written by Harry and Jack Williams, ‘The Tourist’ follows Dornan’s character, a man who wakes up in Australia with amnesia after a car crash. As he seeks answers, he meets a local woman who remembers him and helps him rediscover his identity. Clues suggest he has a dark past from which he must escape before it catches up with him.

The second season of the show, which premiered earlier this year, sees the characters moving to Ireland as the mystery intensifies. The original series was produced by Two Brothers Pictures and Highview Productions.

“We at Banijay are huge fans of Two Brothers and the thrilling masterpieces that they craft,” said Mrinalini Jain, group chief development officer for Banijay Asia & EndemolShine India. “‘The Tourist’ offers a unique blend of mystery and suspense that we believe will resonate deeply with our viewers. We are ecstatic to bring an adaptation of such a gripping and internationally celebrated series to Indian audiences. Collaborating with All3Media International allows us to maintain the high standards set by the original while infusing it with a distinct Indian touch.”

Sabrina Duguet, EVP for Asia Pacific at All3Media International, added, “‘The Tourist’ has been a phenomenal success globally, and we are delighted to see it being adapted for the Indian market. Banijay Asia has an impressive track record of creating high-quality local adaptations, and we are confident that they will deliver an exceptional version of this globally loved thriller. We look forward to seeing how the story will be reimagined for Indian viewers.”
