Here’s Amazon’s Next Batch of Kids PilotsBy: Josh Wolford - August 25, 2014
Amazon Studios has just announced a new round of original kids pilots, set to debut early next year. Like with previous pilot batches from Amazon, viewer feedback will help determine which series get picked up for full season runs.
The new batch of kids pilots features three animated shows and two live-action shows.
Here’s what you can look forward to:
Buddy: Tech Detective, designed for preschoolers, “is an exciting preschool whodunit that follows super-sleuth Buddy, his incredibly organized best friend Trudy, the funny furry ferret Ferdo and you, the smarty-pants viewer! Using a myriad of interactive technologies, Buddy and his team gather evidence, follow cues and crack the case.”
The Stinky & Dirty Show “follows the adventures and mishaps faced by best friends and unlikely heroes, Stinky the garbage truck and Dirty the backhoe loader.”
Niko and the Sword of Light, made for kids aged 6 to 11, “follows ten-year-old Niko who is the last of his kind in a strange, fantastical world. He must embark on an epic quest to defeat the darkness and bring the light back to his land.”
Moving on the the live-action pilots, Table 58 follows “new kid Logan” as he “rallies the group of six mismatched middle schoolers to form a tenuous partnership in order to help each other get back to their rightful place in the cafeteria.”
Just Add Magic “centers on Kelly Quinn and her two BFF’s, Darbie and Hannah, who stumble upon her grandmother’s mysterious cookbook in the attic and discover it has some interesting recipes.”
Amazon also announced that new episodes of Tumble Leaf, Creative Galaxy, and Annedroids will premiere on September 5, October 3, and October 30, respectively.
