POPxo, India’s digital community for women announces the launch of its first webseries ‘UnMarried’. The platform is already a front-runner in creating short, engaging and snackable content – with this new production, it enters the long-form video content space. POPxo has collaborated with India’s most popular OTT video streaming platform partner, Hotstar, where the webseries will be streamed exclusively for 72 hours. Thereafter it will be available on the POPxo app from June 29, 2018
‘UnMarried’, is a hilarious and relatable take on how all of a sudden marriage becomes the centre point in the lives of our three protagonists – Kritika, Abhishek and Chirag and how they deal with the pressure.
Directed by POPxo’s Senior Director Shashank Pandey and written by Sandeep Jain, the story is a take on how society labels single people as ‘UnMarried’ because it believes that you should be ‘settled’ by a certain age. With each episode, the drama unfolds to reveal what happens in the life of an ‘UnMarried’ person. The webseries, with a total of 7 episodes of 25 minutes each promises to keep the viewers hooked from start to finish.
‘UnMarried’ is presented in association with Melange by Lifestyle, Numero Uno (fashion partner) and WOO (dating partner).
Speaking about the launch, Priyanka Gill, Founder and CEO, POPxo said – “At POPxo we are the market-leaders in creating digital video content at scale – we produce over 100 videos a month, generating over 120 million monthly views. With UnMarried – our debut webseries, we are adding a longer format to our production capabilities. Our viewers have been clamoring for a POPxo webseries and I am delighted that we have produced it all in-house. We are excited to partner with Hotstar to launch Unmarried.”
Speaking about the collaboration Ajit Mohan, CEO, Hotstar said– “Hotstar has opened its platform to content creators. We now reach around 150 million users in a month and we are keen for new storytellers to leverage our scale and our audience that shows very purposeful engagement, to build their brands and create new followership. We are delighted that POPxo is leveraging this opportunity to launch their new webseries, UnMarried, on Hotstar.”
