'Game of the Sexes' is themed around the game of cricket in a first-ever challenging format. The series is set in a post-Covid era when audiences have stopped coming to the stadium & the Cricket Board decides to bring back the excitement & interest in the game of cricket. An idea of conducting a mixed-gender cricket match gets approved but the girl who suggested it is accused of a scandal and expelled from the board. The concept is in sync with EORtv's Mission to be inclusive and create acceptance for all communities in society by eliminating any kinds of biases based on gender stereotypes and sexual orientation and highlight gender equality.
The show will start shoot this month in Uttar Pradesh at the prestigious Shirdi Sai Public School, Moradabad.
