Epic Conditions was developed by WME in 2005. The Weather Channel commissioned five episodes the following year and an additional ten in 2007. The series premiered in primetime in the spring of 2006 and was also run as a primetime stunt in the fall of 2007 with episodes playing nightly for 6 consecutive weeks. Epic Conditions showed the positive impact of weather on locations throughout North America including Alaska, Hawaii, Colorado, California, Idaho, British Columbia and Maryland. Epic drew new and younger viewers to TWC and was also heavily promoted on www.weather.com/tv with an "Epic" branded interactive sub-site. As of the fall 2008, the series is still being aired and is also being distributed by Cable Ready in the international market.
