bulbKIDZ & Lion Forge Partner for Alien Baby Sitters


Canadian-U.S. company bulbKIDZ (Gopher It!, TuTiTu, NuNi) and the Academy Award-winning Lion Forge Animation (Hair Love) are set to co-develop and produce Alien Baby Sitters.

Aimed at kids ages 6 to 11, the animated comedy series follows three best friends who use their babysitting skills and the mysterious abilities of four alien babies to protect their small town from a group of mad scientists.

From creators Kaaren Lee Brown (Super Monsters, S.M.A.S.H!, Tarzan and Jane, Roswell Conspiracies: Aliens, Myths & Legends) and Robert N. Skir (GoGoBus & Team S.T.E.A.M., Team S.T.E.A.M. Beyond, X-Men), Alien Baby Sitters is set for a spring 2023 release.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with the incredibly accomplished Lion Forge team on this comical, yet extremely relevant, premise,” said Nancy Koff, co-founder and executive VP of content strategy and global sales at bulbKIDZ. “The opportunity to play off today’s worldly news on UFOs and play up related urban myths into the narrative enhances our ability to think outside the toybox while recognizing that friends come in all shapes, sizes and species.”

Alien Baby Sitters is a hilarious mashup of Rugrats meets The Powerpuff Girls, with a hint of Dexter’s Laboratory,” commented Kiersten Halstead, co-founder and executive VP of creative development and global operations at bulbKIDZ. “We’re taking the global appeal of these classic successes that lacked representation during their heyday and making our original series relevant to today’s landscape. What better way to achieve this than to work with the trailblazing, award-winning Lion Forge?”

“With news stories constantly surfacing regarding declassified government documents and how they spark everyone’s imagination, Alien Baby Sitters couldn’t come at a better time,” added Carl Reed, chief creative officer of Lion Forge Animation. “After knowing Nancy and Kiersten for many years, together with our commitment to diverse content, we are thrilled to be developing this especially timely sitcom under their bulbKIDZ venture.”

“At the heart of our multicultural cast of characters, Alien Baby Sitters proves that entertainment can be found amongst binkies, bottles and things that go boom!” said Lee Brown.

Skir added, “Rock-solid friendships and rocket-fueled adventures occur in this perfectly normal town where strangely abnormal things happen.”
