Welcome to Chippendales’ development was revealed to the public last year, and it was originally titled Immigrant.

The show is based on K. Scot Macdonald and Patrick MontesDeOca’s book Deadly Dance: The Chippendales Murders, which was originally published in 2014.

The program will follow the life of Banerjee, who ultimately committed suicide in 1994 while awaiting sentencing after being charged with murder for hire, among other offenses.

The late businessman’s life had been adapted into several projects in the past, and he was played by Naveen Andrews in the 2000 television film The Chippendales Murder.

Other cast members include Robin De Jesus, Spencer Boldman and Nicola Peltz, who will appear in a guest role.

Physical production on the program took place earlier this year, although it was briefly paused due to a member of the production team testing positive for COVID-19.
