Firstpost became one of the first digital houses to come up with a web series. The web series, titled 9 Months strived to give relevant information to parents of new-born babies. Now, the series will have a second season and stream on two websites, firstpost.com and theindusparent.com.
The series will be presented by Huggies, in association with Eureka Forbes and Nerolac. The season will cover 0-1 years of the baby and parenting for single and adoptive parents. The series will also deal with the mental health scenario after childbirth, separation and divorce. This series is a masterstroke, because it provides information that would otherwise be difficult to find. Therefore, it should find a ready audience. The first season opened to much fanfare and has therefore created a steady fanbase for the web series. With more and more digital companies looking to create intriguing and engaging stories, we are sure that the digital space will see many such game changers in the coming days.
With this, Firstpost takes it second step in a bid to bite some of the streaming pie. Another digital medium, ScoopWhoop made their entry into digital entertainment with the short film Sneh.
