YouTube Multi-Channel Network (MCN) Culture Machine has partnered with Epic Channel to launch Epified, a history and mythology series reports afaqs.com. The details of the partnership have not been disclosed. The report says that Epified will be a collection of short format, non-fiction content, related to Indian history and mythology, including works inspired by the writings of mythologist Devdutt Pattanaik and others. Epified's programming will include series like Mahabharata, Dharma Explained and Gods-Masters-Heroes. Epic TV Networks, which owns Epic Channel, was started in 2012 and produces entertainment content for TV. Epic Channel is the company's first genre specific entertainment channel that produces shows based on Indian history, folklore and mythology in genres such as action, drama, comedy and narrative non-fiction. Epic Channel has its own YouTube channel since 2013 with almost 14,000 subscribers at the time of writing. It appears that Culture Machine, which has primarily been focusing on the genres of music, comedy and lifestyle, is looking to expand its reach to include content from other genres. In February 2015, Culture Machine had raised Series B funding worth $18 million from Tiger Global Management and existing investors Times Internet and Zodius Capital to for technology and content. The company had claimed to have a network of 400 content creators across the genres of music, comedy and beauty at that point. In October last year, the company had also partnered with What's Trending, an American media show to adapt the format to India.
