Channa Deshapriya, a veteran DOP, required a script for a new teledrama that he was producing with the accredited director Anuruddha Jayasinghe for Sirasa TV, a massive television channel in Sri Lanka. The aim was to produce a political thriller that would stand out in the industry.
We assembled a team of four talented writers to work with the director and crew to develop the script for the teledrama. The writing room took on the challenge of creating a groundbreaking script that would capture the attention of the audience. After several months of hard work, the team came up with a gritty script for the teledrama, titled "Piyabana Munissam."
The teledrama production began in April 2021, with a stellar cast featuring big names in the industry and talented actors. The team worked tirelessly for several months to ensure that the script was executed flawlessly. The teledrama premiered on Sirasa TV in October of the same year and ran for 60+ episodes. The audience was impressed with the fresh and gritty writing, and critics acclaimed the production for discussing politics at a level never seen before in a teledrama.
The teledrama "Piyabana Munissam" was a resounding success, receiving critical acclaim from both audiences and critics. The script's political thriller theme was well received by the audience, and the cast's performances were highly appreciated. The teledrama's fresh and gritty writing was also praised for bringing politics to a new level in a teledrama. Overall, the success of the teledrama highlights the importance of investing in high-quality scriptwriting to produce critically acclaimed productions.
