Children's Television Programming



One of the areas that we are looking to expand into is children's television programming. Much of the media in Kenya is produced externally and is often lacking in kid friendly values. There is a dramatic need for local, contextually relevant, age-appropriate children's programming offering positive values and creativity to inspire young minds. With help from a former script writer for Kenya Broadcasting Corporation, we've been putting together ideas for a children's show to be filmed at Church Army Academy. Last week we held auditions for Cookie and Sly and are now sourcing for a sponsor to produce a pilot and the first several episodes. Cookie and Sly will feature a mix of drama between two childhood friends as well as interactive games and competitions with a live studio audience of primary school children. (Above is a sketch of two of of the main characters.)
