Producers and broadcasters are now adopting an international style of programming with finite shows that last for a certain time period and deal with concepts that do not need years to be told. In 2014 while Star Plus launched finite shows like ‘Airlines’, ‘Everest’ and ‘Private Investigator’, Colors introduced ’24’ late last year, Zee TV got ‘Maharakshak Aryan’ and Sony Entertainment Television had ‘Yudh’. ‘Laut Aao Trisha’ and ‘Pukaar’ are still running on Life OK. Most of the stories had a narrative that ran for 13 to 26 episodes (except for ‘Laut Aao Trisha’, which is 250 episodes). Moreover, even as producers became quality conscious, they started working on stories with limited episodes but presenting various themes.
