Indian-Amrican producer Ashok Amritraj, who has produced films like Walking Tall and Bringing Down the House, will host a television series on Doordarshan.

Amritraj has collaborated with the United Nation for the eight episode television series titled Chance of a Lifetime.

The first time UN collaboration on a TV series will allow the contestants full access to the archival library of the various organisations including UNESCO, UNF and UN FOOD, among others.

The show will also see Hollywood stars like George Clooney and many others as part of the series promoting humanitarian causes.

Senior UN personnel will be seen communicating with the contestants via Skype during the production of the various documentaries.

“Its been such a wonderful experience working with my friends at the United Nations and watching these young filmmakers from diverse cultures forge partnerships to create socially relevant documentaries,” Amritraj said in a statement.

The show will go on air on DD National from tomorrow.
