Big Bad Boo Greenlights 16 Hudson Spin-Off


Big Bad Boo Studios is set to expand the world of its preschool series 16 Hudson with a new spin-off called ABC with Kenny G.

Big Bad Boo has greenlit 30 episodes of the animated short-form series. It is set to launch in 2020 in Canada on TVOKids and Knowledge Kids and in the U.S. on Big Bad Boo’s SVOD channel, Oznoz.

Each episode focuses on one letter of the alphabet in a fun and fresh new way. ABC with Kenny G will feature music by Toronto-based musician Matt Davis, who also worked on the music for 16 Hudson.

When night falls and the humans at 16 Hudson go to bed, grumpy Kensington, Lili’s cat, slinks down to the basement boiler room into the “milk & cookies” jazz club in his tuxedo and swoons to some late-night ABC songs. Kensington, or Kenny G, is joined by a cast of tapper street cats, dogs, rats and raccoons, who all want to learn how to read.

“Kensington has been a runaway star from the start of 16 Hudson and now he finally gets his own stage. Get ready for some funny, upbeat songs which will have not just early preschoolers but the whole family in mind,” said Shabnam Rezaei, the series’ creator and co-founder of Big Bad Boo.
