Tony and Emmy Award winner Mandy Patinkin (Homeland, Criminal Minds) has joined the cast of Sprout’s upcoming preschool series Nina’s World, as the voice of friendly community librarian Mr. Lambert.

Based on the childhood of the character Nina from Sprout’s The Good Night Show, the animated prequel series celebrates themes of family, community, diversity and wonder as seen through the eyes of an imaginative six-year-old girl.

In each episode, Nina invites viewers to tag along with her and her best friend Star for a day filled with fun and adventure in her vibrant and colorful neighborhood.

Sprout, a 24-hour preschool channel available on TV, online and on-demand, is working with Canadian prodco Pipeline Studios to create the series, which premieres in September.
