Team Epic is a Canadian television and web series consisting of four 40-minute episodes that began broadcasting in 15-minute segments on the show's official website in October 2007. In 2009 the show was picked up and began airing weekly on the digital cable network BiteTV (now known as Makeful TV) in a similar 15-minute format. Following a ragtag band of Canadian superheroes, the show itself is filled with iconic Canadian imagery and Silver Age of Comic Books references. Obvious visual influences can be seen between the show's lead character, Captain Epic, and traditional Canadian superheroes, Captain Canuck, Guardian and Northguard. The series is set in and around the streets of downtown Toronto, Team Epic is a fast-paced live action comedy that provides an original look into the everyday lives of superheroes and how they become the figures we know and revere.
