Amazon's newest live-action kids series, Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street, will land on Amazon Prime Instant Video on November 21.

The series follows Gortimer, "a kid fiercely loyal to his best friends and family, as he embarks with Ranger and Mel on magical exploits triggered by their thirst for adventure."

According to Amazon Studios, "the upcoming season will bring the trio together to help the unluckiest kid on Normal Street, solve a mystery before a spooky spirit turns them into ghost stories, undertake a scavenger hunt through town to find the fabled lost treasure of Normal Street, and outsmart fate after some alarming advice from a fortune teller."

Amazon first debuted the Gortimer pilot back in February, and it did well enough to merit a full-series order.

“I’m so happy that Amazon has allowed me to tell this very special story of a world through the eyes of a 13-year-old where things are still a little magical,” said David Anaxagoras, the show's creator. He's a pre-school teacher, and this is his first writing project. “This is a dream I’ve had for a long time and the entire experience has felt natural and exciting—from my initial submission and the pilot being greenlit to working alongside talented minds pouring themselves into the project through the series’ production.”

This isn't Amazon's first original live-action kids show (Annedroids), but it's the first one aimed at kids 6 - 11. The protagonist in the series in 13.
