Escapade Media has secured the worldwide rights for Intuitive Content and ProjectExplorer’s Crash Test World, which stars MythBusters’ Kari Byron.
Crash Test World is an educational adventure series that takes kids and their families around the world to see what it’s like to live in other cultures. Byron travels the globe, immersing herself in a location’s history and culture to see how the people there come together to create a unique local way of life. The series was created and executive produced by Jenny Buccos, the founder of ProjectExplorer, which will offer segments from the series to the 6 million students who access the company’s online portal. Andrew Zimmern’s Intuitive Content is the series’ producer.
Zimmern commented: “Crash Test World tells the inspiring stories of young people who are creating solutions to some of the toughest issues of our time. Kari Byron, the original Crash Test Girl, is the perfect and trusted storyteller to bring this exciting series to life.”
Buccos said: “Crash Test World is a huge step up in terms of our mission to create globally competent youth! After 16 years of being one of the U.S.’ most trusted children’s educational programming providers, we know Crash Test World has the power to become a jumping off point for family discussions on ‘big’ ideas!”
Byron added: “No place is defined by one story. Traveling the world has taught me that to find the heart of a culture you need to see how people eat, play and live together. We are more alike than different. Join me, and let’s crash test the world and discover what brings us together.”
