Apple TV+ will expand its award-winning offering of premium Apple Originals for kids and families with “Hello, Jack! The Kindness Show,” a new, breakthrough live action series from creators Jack McBrayer (“30 Rock,” “Phineas and Ferb,” “Wreck-It Ralph” franchise) and Angela C. Santomero (“Blue’s Clues,” “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood,” author of Radical Kindness) that aims to ignite kindness through exploring empathy, humor, playfulness and imagination.
Anchored around Emmy Award-winner Jack McBrayer’s infectious positivity and playful humor, “Hello, Jack! The Kindness Show” invites preschoolers into a world where a little act of kindness can change the world. Alongside special guest stars, Jack inspires kids to solve problems with kindness and heart. The series showcases stories where acts of kindness are shown through “The Three C’s” – caring, connecting, and cascading kindness from one person to another. The series also features original songs from the Grammy Award-winning band, OK Go.
“Hello, Jack! The Kindness Show” is co-created and executive produced by McBrayer and Santomero. The series is produced by Emmy Award-winning 9 Story Media Group (“Blue’s Clues and You!” “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood,” “Karma’s World”) and animated by its Oscar® nominated studio Brown Bag Films (“Doc McStuffins,” “Vampirina,” “Ada Twist”), with Wendy Harris and Vince Commisso serving as executive producers. Emmy Award-winner Guy Toubes will serve as showrunner. Junlei Li, the Saul Zaentz senior lecturer in early childhood education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, serves as the Kindness and Human Connection Expert on the series.
