Star Struck Confessions of a TV Executive
There is no guide to cracking the biggest TV market in the world. What there is,
is this: the incredible story of how it was done, written by the man who was at
the forefront of it all.
The early ’90s marked an age of American TV dominating the world, from Baywatch to
Cheers to The Jerry Springer Show. Only, it wasn’t winning over the Indian market, where
access to one billion TV viewers was dominated by a powerful terrestrial network.
Sensing a once-in-a-generation opportunity, Rupert Murdoch gave Peter Mukerjea a
seemingly impossible task—to grow a tiny foreign-owned TV channel in India into one of the
biggest in the world.
From battling rival CEOs, to winning over presidents, from making multimillion dollar deals
in the back of a Mumbai taxi to audaciously hiring the biggest film star in the world as your
TV host—and making him even bigger—this book chronicles the unbelievable (yet 100 per
cent true) story of how a crack team turned Star TV from a quirky challenger channel to the
shining jewel in the crown of the Murdoch, and now Disney, global media empire.
