The first season premiered exclusively on the Youtube channel of Basic Studios Bangladesh. With Channel I as its partner, season 2 is the first season to air on national television.

Powered by Orion group and submitted by Impulse hospital, the series is directed by Kazal Arefin Omi. It features a rich cast of Tawsif Mahbub, Abdullah Rana, Bijori Barkatullah, Sabila Nur, Naufel Jisan etc.

The creators described their ambition of filling up the lack of fun contents in Bangladesh. They stated the comedy of mainstream media in Bangladesh is clichéd, and hoped that the absurd nature coupled with contemporary humor will make Basic Ali appear as a breath of fresh air. Everyone involved was thanked for making the live-adaption of the cartoon strip published on Prothom Alo.
