Adhir Kalyan stars in Amazon Studios sitcom ‘Making Friends’

The show has been written by ‘How I Met Your Mother’ creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas.

Adhir Kalyan (Rules of Engagement) will star with British actress Georgia King in Amazon Studios’ Making Friends, Deadline reported. The sitcom has been written by How I Met Your Mother creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, while Pam Fryman will direct. There are no details yet on when the show will go into production.

Making Friends chronicles the misadventures of Mark (Kalyan), an Artificial Intelligence scientist whose main companions are the robots he creates. But his robot friends go rogue when he invites bartender Shelly (King), who has a Master’s degree in Psychology, for dinner.

This will be Amazon Studios’ first multi-camera pilot, meaning it will be filmed in front of a live audience from various angles.

King was last seen in HBO’s comedy series Vice Principals, which concluded on November 12. The comedy chronicled the power struggle between two high-school administrators vying to become the principal. Kalyan, a South African of Indian origin, starred in the short-lived crime drama Second Chance. He was a part of the recurring cast of the first three seasons Rules of Engagement and was bumped up to series regular in Season 4.

A phone so stunning that it deserves its own photoshoot

Presenting the Moto X4, crafted to perfection.

Precision-crafted glass and metal design, an anodised aluminium frame, easy to hold and featuring beautiful contours, the Moto X4 is crafted to perfection indeed.

With the distinctive placement of the rear cameras, this phone makes a great subject for a photographic series.

The light reveals the fluidity of its body; curves that fit perfectly in the contours of a palm.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
