MUMBAI: Popular Tamil digital media brand Put Chutney by Culture Machine is foraying into television content production by collaborating with Star India’s Tamil GEC Star Vijay.

As per this association, Put Chutney, which caters to Tamil-speaking audience, will produce one-hour exclusive episodes for Star Vijay. The episode is produced for a show entitled ‘Intensive Comedy Unit’ (ICU).

This is a first-of-its-kind collaboration in South India between a digital brand and a major broadcast television network.

Talking about the deal, Culture Machine president Tuhin Menon commented, “Put Chutney has grown in the hearts and minds of viewers to occupy a pivotal spot in the cultural milieu of Tamil-speaking audiences globally. This deal with Star Vijay represents a major extension of the brand, which now straddles both digital and linear platforms. We could not have found a better partner than Star Vijay to take the Put Chutney brand to the next level, through a unique one-hour show that is guaranteed to delight loyal and new audiences alike.”

Starting 2 July, ‘The Put Chutney Show’ will air on Star Vijay every Sunday, at 12 noon. The unique format and characters for the show have been developed by Put Chutney.
