"The Fabulous Show with Fay and Fluffy"
WildBrain Television announces the commissioning of "The Fabulous Show with Fay and Fluffy", a new 26-episode series aimed at kids aged 3-6 and produced by Lopii Productions. The cabaret-style show is hosted by the dynamic drag duo Fay Slift (JP Kane) and Fluffy Soufflé (Kaleb Robertson) who – together with puppet friends and special guests – foster a love of reading and encourage kindness and empathy.
Production commenced July 13 in Toronto and the series is set to premiere on WildBrain Television’s Family Jr in early 2022. "The Fabulous Show with Fay and Fluffy" is being distributed by Sinking Ship Entertainment and is being produced with the financial participation of the Shaw Rocket Fund.
Katie Wilson, VP, Channels and Curation at WildBrain Television, said: “This is such a positive and joyful series that focuses on the importance of inclusivity, kindness and community. Fay and Fluffy are standout entertainers with a passion for reading, who bring infectious fun to story time with songs and silliness along the way. Audiences at home and in the studio are in for a real treat.”
Kaleb Robertson, who plays Fluffy, said: “I’m beyond thrilled to bring this representation for LGBTQ2S+ families. The support of WildBrain and Lopii Productions to bring this project to light is immeasurable in terms of the impact it can have on children and families who don’t see themselves positively portrayed in the media. Most importantly, it’s going to be so much fun!”
JP Kane, who plays Fay, added: “I’m excited to work alongside WildBrain to share my love of literacy with a whole new audience. I’m passionate about creating something that children and their families can see themselves reflected in.”
Rennata and Georgina Lopez, Executive Producers and founders of Lopii Productions, said: “We can’t wait to create this adorable series with Family Jr.! Fay and Fluffy represent all that we love and stand for at Lopii Productions – being kind, celebrating and loving yourself and making sure everyone is included!”
Agnes Augustin, President & CEO, Shaw Rocket Fund, added: “It’s so important for young Canadian kids – and children worldwide – to have access to content that promotes and celebrates inclusivity, and we’re proud to support WildBrain and Lopii Productions as they create this positive and unique programming. We’re excited to be part of such a fun and engaging series for preschoolers.”
