Big Bad Boo Studios announced that their spin-off series “ABC with Kenny G” is debuting across North America in English and French this fall with 30x2’ episodes. Created by Shabnam Rezaei, the musical preschool series features Marcus Mosely, Vancouver-based Gospel singer, as the lead Kenny G, Lili and Lola’s cat from the hit series “16 Hudson”.
The 2D animated series will premiere with the commissioning broadcaster TVOKids in the greater Ontario region in Canada on August 2, followed by TFO on September 11 and Knowledge Kids on September 13. “ABC with Kenny G” will also be available in the United States exclusively on Amazon Prime Video and multilingual SVOD channel Oznoz. Further broadcast partners include SRC Radio Canada in French.
The series premise is that after all the “16 Hudson” humans have gone to bed, Kensington slinks down to the “Milk & Cookies” jazz club in the basement boiler room to sing late-night ABC tunes for his fellow furry friends, teaching them the ABCs. Each episode features a song about a different letter in the alphabet, written by composer Matt Davis, and sung by Marcus Mosely.
Big Bad Boo has plans to distribute the show worldwide in multiple languages, similar to previous original shows “1001 Nights” and “16 Hudson”. This month, “ABC with Kenny G” was nominated for two Leo Awards in the categories of Best Score and Best Vocal Performance.
