The series will be inspired by of Atlanta hip-hop!
The Migos member just announced that he is partnering up with Imagine Entertainment co-founder Brian Grazer, for a new animated children’s series.
“I have long seen how hip-hop as well as our music (Migos) really impacts kids,” Quavo said in a press release today. “I’ve loved animation my whole life whether on TV or in movies and I wanted my first jump into this premium content world to be a show just for kids. It will definitely reflect the creativity, love, and families in and around the NAWF side of Atlanta where we grew up.” The show’s target age group is kids ages 8-12, and will largely draw it’s inspiration from the Atlanta hip-hop scene. Quavo alongside Grazer will executive produce. Other producers include, Quality Control’s Pierre “Pee” Thomas and Kevin “Coach K” Lee, as well as Dan Altmann and Capitol Music Group’s Brian Nolan and Ryan Allingham.
To Coach K, the most important part of this partnership project is the fact that “all the kids will be seeing themselves” in the series. “When I was growing up there was very little media that had brown and black skinned kids feeling heard or seen and the ones that did stood out and served as a crucial roadmap through our childhoods,” he said. “I’m about inclusive stories that address all kinds of situations that kids of ALL ethnic and financial backgrounds experience and to give them a common tool to learn and grow.”
No word on when the series will air or if it will be shown on a network or be available for streaming. We love this idea and we give Huncho the props for securing what we’re sure is a huge bag! #BlackExcellence
