Amazon’s first live-action kids series aimed at older kids (those aged six to 11) is now available to stream – the first six episodes at least.
Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street, the project of first-time writer David Anaxogorias, launches today. Anaxagorias is a preschool teacher and submitted his show idea to Amazon Studios through its “open-door pilot submissions process”. His show is the first to be greenlit.
“I have much to be thankful for this year and I’m especially grateful that after months of intense work, we can now share Gortimer with the world,” said Anaxagoras. “I couldn’t be more proud of our marvelous cast and crew who managed to tap into that Normal Street magic again and again with each new episode.”
According to Amazon, “the series is a coming-of-age tale of friendship that centers around Gortimer and the bond with his two best friends Ranger and Mel, as they chronicle their adventures on Normal Street – an ordinary suburban neighborhood that has a hint of something unexpected just beneath the surface.
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.
