With national crime graph soaring by the day and hour, it's time for the Indians to sit up, take notice and take charge of their safety. To aid the police and make viewers more alert of the absconding  suspects, COLORS is bringing a special weekly programme in the Crime Reality genre called ‘Wanted-High Alert’ in the 10 PM slot every Saturday from 26 February 2011. Produced by BAG Films, the show will be hosted by the intense and seasoned actor Sushant Singh who will be seen narrating real life cases of suspects and convicts on the run and thereby urging the common man to bring them to book and take charge of his safety.

Crime is closer than ever, as you your family and loved ones are at the risk whenever you step out of the house or if there is a sudden knock at your door. Wanted - High Alert’ is an attempt to nab these convicts and suspects who are moving scot-free in the society despite strong attempts from the police to get them behind bars.

Talking about the new offering, Ashvini Yardi, Programming Head, COLORS, said, “Wanted-High Alert is an initiative by COLORS to create awareness on absconding suspects by sharing pure facts before the viewers and call citizens for action so that ignorance does not result in quandary. Adding this weekly crime show in the programming mix we wish to make Saturdays more exciting for our viewers. The show will definitely attract male audience and also the female audience as it will urge them to be more cautious, aware and responsible. With BAG’s expertise in recreating real life drama and Sushant’s engaging and compelling narration we hope Wanted will keep viewers on High Alert.”

Seasoned actor Sushant Singh, who is known for his socially relevant work in Indian cinema, will be seen making a television debut as an Anchor. With ‘Wanted - High Alert’ Sushant will be taking on an informative and advisory role by alerting the citizens of the case history, whereabouts’ and pictograms of the fugitives that will help viewers identify them better. Sushant who is excited to play this new role as an anchor said, “I am glad to be associated with a socially responsible show like this. I always wanted to host a show that would help me reach out to the viewers directly. It’s a show with a purpose; it’s a tool for us to be able to play our role in making lives of our people secure.  I hope our efforts can trigger the thought that safety of the citizens is in their own hands and we can cohesively aim at bringing a change with this initiative.”

Anuradha Prasad, Managing Director, B.A.G Films who is producing this series said, “Apart from delivering excellent quality entertainment, we at B.A.G Films, also believe in socially responsible content that brings firm and innovative vision to its viewers. Wanted-High Alert is our next step towards this social cause. We are grateful to COLORS who have made us their partners in this mission. We also aim at bringing in the right kind of awareness about crime in the minds of the common people, who at large are the primary victims of the criminal mindset.”
