Colosceum had its humble beginning in the year 2007 with Wheel Smart Srimati & Splitsvilla – India’s first dating reality show. Since our inception, we have built our reputation delivering niche quality content across genres for networks throughout the country & globally. In our first year itself, we were able to build partnerships, which brought five shows on air, Wheel Smart Srimati and Duniya for Doordarshan, Jai Sri Krishna and Bandhan Saat Janmon Ka – being one of the first few shows on Colors and Splitsvilla for MTV.
In 2008, we started our journey with Roadies 8, now regarded as India’s Longest Running Reality Show. Roadies Extreme (Season 15 – 2018) receiving 133 Million views, pitting it against major global television events. Our partners have trusted us in developing homegrown formats and Global multi seasonal franchises such as Masterchef India (Season 1, 2, 3 & 4) & Masterchef Junior (Season 1).

Not only have we created formats which have gone on to become genre cults but also groomed global formats to suit Indian ethos, culture and audiences. Our partners have trusted us in driving channel leadership and connecting to audience tastes.
