A supernatural thriller about a hostile, yet conflicted spirit from the pages of Sanskrit mythology, and the succession of people it travels through.
Season One follows Lily Callahan and Alex Reed, two college reporters who have become targets of The Syndicate, an organized crime group responsible for the trafficking of illegal guns. Lily and Alex’s obsession with exposing the city’s gun trade leads to dire circumstances, giving rise to The Vetala.
The Vetala hails from the Baital Pachisi stories, first written in the Indian book Brihatkatha of Gunadhya, first century A.D. The British explorer, writer and poet, Sir Richard Francis Burton (1821-1890) translated eleven of the Vetala stories from Sanskrit into English in 1870, and titled them Vikram & The Vampire. Burton believed this collection of tales and legends was the inspiration for The Arabian Nights, a book he would also famously translate along with The Kama Sutra.
The Vetala web series brings a contemporary interpretation of this ancient myth to the worldwide web.
The show is independently produced, and has been nominated for a Streamy Award, Leo Award, and selected as a 2010 Webby Award Honoree.
