Disney Branded Television has greenlit an original 2D-animated series called Hailey’s On It! for kids ages six to 14 and their families.
The comedy-adventure centers around a risk-averse hero who’s tasked with saving the world by completing every item on a long list of challenging tasks. Hailey’s On It! is slated for a 2023 release, and there was no additional information about its format at press time.
Auli’i Cravalho (Moana) is the voice actor behind lead character Hailey, with Manny Jacinto (The Good Place) as her best friend Scott. The series was created by Devin Bunje and Nick Stanton (Gamer’s Guide to Pretty Much Everything), and is in production at Disney Television Animation by a team that includes co-executive producer and supervising director Howy Parkins (Lion Guard), producer Wade Wisinki (The Owl House), story editor Karen Graci (Tuca & Bertie) and art director Lee Ann Dufour (The Breadwinner).
This commission comes hot on the heels after Disney Junior and Disney+ greenlit Firebuds, a first responder series in the works as part of Craig Gerber’s overall deal.
