Did you know - according to Hindu mythology, there are three types of cows? Which is the animal associated with Goddess Durga? Which animal served as the mount to Lord Indra? Viewers are mostly familiar with the famous legends in Indian mythology and can recount the various gods and deities and their animal associations, but how and why this came to happen remains lesser known to people at large.

EPIC TV, the only Hindi language Indian infotainment channel, aims to bring to fore stories, legends and lesser known facts in its first animated series - Animals in Mythology, beginning July 4, every Wednesday at 10 pm. Each episode of the 4-part series will feature 2-3 animals who are an integral part of fables like, peacock, snake, horse, lion, turtle, dog, and more.

Speaking about the launch of the unique series, Akul Tripathi, Content and Programming Head, EPIC TV said, “At EPIC we strive to engage with viewers and based on feedback, we learnt that viewers, especially younger ones were curious as to the origin and association of animals in our mythological stories, so we decided to tell it in a way we had not explored in long form content – through animation. We are confident that the stories and the presentation will make for many happy faces.”

For more such stories tune into Animals in Mythology, every Wednesday at 10 pm on EPIC TV.
