TLC to showcase the extravagant life in ‘Epic’

MUMBAI: Lifestyle channel TLC is all set to launch a new show ‘Epic’ which will reflect the extravagant life and expensive indulgences of various people.

Premiering on 16 May, the show will air at 9 pm every Friday. It will follow passionate individuals that create the best and biggest way of life from massive log homes to fascinating American castles.

The series will showcase the daydreamers who have taken their passion to another level with prized possessions that involve expert craftsmanship, technology and innovation.

Discovery Networks Asia Pacific EVP and GM South Asia and head of revenue pan regional ad sales and Southeast Asia Rahul Johri said, “TLC continues to present the finest lifestyle experiences to Indian audience. We are excited to bring some of the world’s most lavish possessions created by passionate group of individuals in our new series Epic.”

Some of the indulgences that will be featured include high-tech bathrooms, rotating houses, backyards with private racetracks, sport courts suspended over cliffs and more.

The first episode will showcase recreational vehicles (RVs), and how Americans are taking to the open road in RVs with a professional golfer who practices on a putting green inside his trailer, to a Hollywood star who ordered a double-wide soaking tub on his double-decker bus.

The recreational vehicles (RVs) have been transformed into mobile man-caves and mansions and tricked out with high tech gadgets. Joining RVs for a second round in the series are more episodes featuring the crème de la crème of log homes.

Bathrooms are the new hot spots of modern homes. In the second episode of the show, viewers will take a look at bathrooms with six-figure fixtures to ceilings with stars, to hot tubs and space age technology that demand top notch engineering.

Other episodes include underwater caves, beach homes with two story windows, outdoor showers and indoor rivers and smart homes which follow voice commands, feed the cat, shut out sunlight and even automatically trap intruders.

There will also be a special ‘Home Builds’ episode that will showcase a flying saucer house that spins an underground dome and a 10-story tree house.
