The ABC show jumps from 10th position to 4th in a survey about new shows!
Priyanka Chopra can have that last laugh! When she signed up to be the face of the new ABC series Quantico, many thought it was a HUGE mistake on her part to leave her comfort zone of reigning in Bollywood and be a part of an American series. When the first trailer was released, it didn't exactly evince great curiosity, apart from the fact that it showed the series revolved around Priyanka Chopra! The trailer hinted at all the signs of a generic show and tropes.
However, looks can be deceiving and the first episode of the series which premiered last week surprised many of us, when it came to building a nail-biting premise. Sure, it doesn't have the finesse of a House of Cards or a Mad Men, but it's certainly not a disaster as perceived, and is slowly becoming a talking point in US.
Don't believe us?
According to a report by USA Today, the Priyanka Chopra show has taken a huge jump from 10th position to 4th when it comes to gaining people's interest in new shows. This report is based is based on a survey conducted by Keller Fay Group, that follows viewer conversations about new shows and track which show is being the most talked about. While ABC's The Muppets takes the 1st position, Priyanka's show is just three spots behind!
So what does that mean? Simple enough, the show has gone from almost a lost cause (before the pilot aired) to people finally realising, bande mein dum hai!
As for Priyanka Chopra, what can we say to her, other than - Atta girl! You just made the whole country proud!
