New Delhi, Feb 27 (IANS) A series titled "Snake" will unfold the life of master conman Charles Sobhraj on Indian OTT platform Zee 5.

Invar Studios Global, a production entity with offices in Los Angeles, Mumbai and Silicon Valley, will produce three seasons of English and Hindi language crime series, reports variety.com.

The series will focus on the life of French national Sobhraj, nicknamed the 'Bikini Killer'. He is now serving time in a Nepal prison. Sobhraj was previously the subject of the films "Main Aur Charles" (2015) and "Shadow Of The Cobra" (1989).

Invar partner Farrukh Dhondy is the series' showrunner, who will run the writers' room. The script will be based on several years of research and personal interviews conducted by Dhondy with Sobhraj. Jonathan Jiang, chief executive of production house Dragon Dreams, is one of the development partners.

Invar's slate includes World War II-set "The Huma Bird - Noor Inayat Khan" about the first British-Indian spy, being co-written by Dhondy and Steven Armstrong; and "Aryabhatta" about the eponymous pioneering Indian mathematician/astronomer, that another Invar partner Santosh Sivan will direct from a script by Dhondy.

Sivan's Invar-produced "Sin" is in post production and is due later this year.
