My son came home a couple years ago complaining about the politics in his grade six class. It was precious and I thought it would make a good TV show. I wrote a bible and pilot script and then showed it to Frank Falone and Mary Bredin at Guru Studio. They liked it so we decided to partner on the project and pitch it to Teletoon.
Teletoon put it into development and we wrote a bible, some scripts and came up with some character designs. Bell New Media Fund paid for a digital pilot. It’s taken a while to get everything right, but I’m pleased with how it came out.
The response has been phenomenal. I’m not allowed to share the statistics but I can say that they’re very good. I hope to post an update here soon.
A big shout out to Mike Cameron and Tom Berger who produced and directed the pilot. You guys are terrific!
