Big Bad Boo Studios announced today that their spin-off series ABC with Kenny G (30 X 2) is debuting across North America in English and French later this summer. Created by Shabnam Rezaei, the musical preschool series features Vancouver-based Gospel singer Marcus Mosely as the lead Kenny G, a.k.a Kensington, Lili and Lola s cat from the hit series 16 Hudson.
The 2D animated series premieres with the lead 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 U.S. 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 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 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 won the LEO Award for Best Score and was nominated for Best Vocal Performance in the children’s program category.
