The Family Man - Season 1
The Family Man: Season 1 was showcased at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour held in Los Angeles in February 2019. On 15 July 2019, Amazon Prime Video announced five new series in production, where a first poster released on the occasion of Prime Day celebrations. The series consisting of 10-episodes was announced for a release on September. The photoshoot of the teaser poster was shot using One Plus mobile camera, which was released on 30 August 2019, along with the teaser. The official trailer was unveiled on 2 September 2019. Amazon Prime Video released the series in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu languages on 19 September 2019, ahead of the initially scheduled release of 20 September, in more than 200 countries.
On 28 September 2019, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh raised objection to the concerns over a few scenes in the web series about the situation in Jammu and Kashmir. An RSS-affiliated magazine Panchajanya stated that “In the series, a woman affiliated to the National Investigation Agency is shown speaking to her male colleague at Srinagar’s Lal Chowk, decrying the fact that Kashmiris were being oppressed by the Indian state as it had shut down phones and internet and used measures like the Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act. At one point she asks her male colleague, who appears quite affected by her talk, whether there is any difference between the Indian officials and militants.” The magazine also accused the makers for creating sympathy for terrorists. The series became the most-watched Indian web shows on Amazon Prime Video.
