Three new kids and family series from Bento Box Entertainment, 9 Story/Brown Bag Films and Scholastic are joining Apple TV+ this fall.
Premiering on September 24, Wolfboy and the Everything Factory (pictured) is produced by Fox Entertainment’s Bento Box and Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s HITRECORD, with Gordon-Levitt serving as executive producer and voicing one of the main characters.
This 10 x 25-minute animated series is about an imaginative oddball who discovers a strange realm at the center of the earth where magical beings create everyday things such as clouds, rabbits and dreams. Developed by showrunner/EP Michael Ryan (All Hail King Julien), Wolfboy and the Everything Factory is inspired by the work of artist Toff “Wirrow” Mazery, who is also a writer and EP on the project, along with co-creator Edward Jesse (Create Together). Bento Box co-founders Scott Greenberg and Joel Kuwahara are on board to executive produce as well.
Get Rolling with Otis, based on a Penguin Random House book series of the same name by Loren Long, is a 3D-animated preschool series from 9 Story Media Group and Brown Bag Films. Set to launch on October 8, each of the show’s eight x 22-minute episodes will take place at Long Hill Dairy Farm, home to a tractor that is always trying to help his friends. Otis is executive produced by Long, Vince Commisso, Wendy Harris, Darragh O’Connell, Angela Santomero and Jane Startz.
Also based on a range of popular children’s books, Puppy Place (eight x 60 minutes) chronicles the adventures of dog-loving siblings and the puppies they foster. Produced by Scholastic, this live-action series will roll out on Apple TV+ on October 15. Iole Lucchese, Caitlin Friedman and Jef Kaminsky are serving as producers for Scholastic. The project’s other producers include Andrew Green, Linda Mathious, Heather MacGillvray, Vincent Brown and Ari Posner.
