Some of our work:

Our content production amasses half a billion monthly views!

Some of our content production may be considered polarising, but we certainly love it as it truly holds it's value, entertains and creates discussion. Read our mission for more insight.

This is not to say that reality TV content style and more adventurous 'click bait' content does not hold it's value as it certainly is a means for escapism, joy and engages on a human level like no other media.

We take pride in keeping millions of viewers every month entertained with varied content that they enjoy!
