Info

Epitome Pictures Inc. is a television production company based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and founded by Linda Schuyler. It is owned by DHX Media and is best known for its work on the Degrassi television franchise.
Epitome produced two television drama series aimed primarily at the youth and the young-adult market (which was the first DHX Media program not to be aimed primarily at the children market). The first was Degrassi: The Next Generation, which is broadcast on MTV and Much (previously CTV) in Canada and TeenNick in the United States, and is licensed to over 150 countries around the world. The other was Instant Star, which was similarly broadcast on CTV and TeenNick, and is licensed to over 120 countries worldwide.
Other television series that Epitome or its sister companies have produced in the past include Liberty Street and Riverdale (English Canada's first prime-time soap-opera).
Previous incarnations of the Degrassi series including The Kids of Degrassi Street, Degrassi Junior High, Degrassi High and the movie-of-the-week School's Out were produced by Playing With Time Inc., a company owned by Linda Schuyler and Kit Hood and founded in 1976 which has been inactive since the mid-1990s when Hood and Schuyler ended their partnership (Epitome owns the rights to these series). In April 2014, the company was acquired by fellow Canadian television producer DHX Media.
