A Pair Of Brand-New Original Animated Series, Norm And Powerbirds Have Been Greenlit For The New Sprout Preschool Block On Upcoming US Net Universal Kids

NBCUniversal’s forthcoming Universal Kids network has greenlit two new 52 x 11 minute original animated series, Norm and Powerbirds, for its Sprout preschool block.

Created by two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist Steve Breen, Powerbirds follows the adventures of two pet parakeets that happen to live secret superhero lives. The series is expected to debut in early 2019.

Norm, meanwhile, is a stop-motion series scheduled for late 2019 starring the son of Mother Nature. As a handyman of the forest, he uses his wits and a sprinkle of magic to solve problems for his eccentric animal friends.

Both new series were announced as development projects in February.

Universal Kids has also revealed July 15 as the Sprout premiere date for its Zodiak Kids-produced animated original Kody Kapow, and added Jason Alexander (Seinfeld) to its voice cast as Goji the Tiger. Set in China, the series follows a Chinese-American boy who learns he is destined to become a martial arts superhero.

Kody Kapow is created by Alexander Bar (Mike the Knight) and developed for television by Robin J. Stein and Daniel Bryan Franklin. It is executive produced by Eryk Casemiro, with animation produced by Boat Rocker-owned Jam Filled under the direction of Sam Chou.

The rebranding of Sprout into Universal Kids will officially kick off from September 9, 2017. Sprout’s name will live on as a daily preschool programming block airing 15 hours of content with Universal Kids programmed older kids and families then on.
