The US pubcaster dug deeper into social issues this year with the premiere of its latest installment of Emmy-winning series PBS KIDS Talk About, which featured authentic, age-appropriate conversations about race and racial justice-related topics between real children and their parents. The channel also bowed Fred Rogers Productions’ new puppet series Donkey Hodie, which targets a preschool audience and focuses on problem-solving, as well as STEM-themed series Elinor Wonders Why from scientist creators Daniel Whiteson and Jorge Cham. In other achievements, PBS KIDS put out a call for original literacy-themed pitches from creators in underrepresented communities, with funding from a US Department of Education grant.
