StinkyKids, LLC. and Jarrett Creative Team Up for StinkyKids Animation
Animated kids’ series production underway
(Atlanta, GA) – StinkyKids, LLC has entered into a project collaboration agreement with Jarrett Creative to develop and produce an animated series based on the award-winning StinkyKids books. The series, designed for preschool and early grade school kids, includes content for broadcast and digital distribution across multiple channels worldwide.
“I’m delighted to work with Jarrett Creative on a StinkyKids animated series,” stated Britt Menzies, award-winning children’s author and creator of StinkyKids. “In addition to being incredibly talented, Seth and Julie Jarrett are parents just like me, and our goal is to bring laughter and learning to little stinKers throughout the world in a way that is relevant to them.”
”It has been a lifelong dream for me as a Producer and Director to create an animated series for children,” stated Seth Jarrett, owner and Executive Creator of Jarrett Creative. “The moment I saw the StinkyKids characters – which amazingly I discovered through my daughter – I knew it was a project I must bring to television. Britt is a brilliant creator and ‘leader of good,’ and my team and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be working with her on this one of a kind educational and entertaining brand.”
The StinkyKids animated series is based on the award-winning books, “StinkyKids and the Runaway Scissors,” and “StinkyKids See a Full Moon,” both of which have been awarded a Mom’s Choice Award. A third book, “StinkyKids Have a Heart,” is set for release by Raven Tree Press on August 10, 2012. The book deals with bullying and the harm that can result from kids being unkind to one another. The story is told in a manner that is age-appropriate for young children.
In addition to the books, StinkyKids debuted as a musical this spring and was awarded the 2012 Best Family Show from the Off-Broadway Alliance. The musical currently runs through September XX, 2012 at the Riverside Theater in New York City.
About the Series:
The StinkyKids animated series features, Britt, a six year old girl with flaming bright red hair and personality to match, along with her nine colorful friends. StinkyKids animation is based on the award-winning children’s books by Britt Menzies and will focus social emotional learning as its primary development curriculum. StinkyKids comes from the phrase “little stinKers”, a term of endearment used to represent the innocent, mischievous behavior of the author’s two children, and the on-going challenge of learning from their mistakes.
About Jarrett Creative
When Hollywood studios and top-tier cable television networks want dynamic and compelling shows with broad audience appeal, they approach Seth Jarrett and Julie Insogna-Jarrett at Jarrett Creative. Seth, a visionary Director, and Julie, an intuitive producer, have created original and wildly entertaining series for networks from Disney to TNT to Syfy. The company’s primary focus is creating and producing shows based on Seth’s knack for bringing story-telling and first person narrative to life, and Julie’s ability to connect with both famous and new talent. Between Seth’s powerful creative vision and Julie’s skills as a dealmaker, the company has become an immediate success. When Disney and Nickelodeon’s The N decided they wanted to create reality programming they both reached out to Seth and Julie. Trusting in Seth’s vision and the couple’s skills at working with celebrity talent, the results yielded “The Jonas Brother’s Living the Dream” and “Stacey Farber NYC 101.” JC’s popular “Celebrity Ghost Stories” kicked off as one of BIO’s highest-rated primetime specials ever. It is now in its sixth season on the network. JC has produced 50 episodes of “Celebrity Ghost Stories,” and is in the process of producing 40 more. The company has since created high profiles series including “School Spirits” which is a partnership with legendary producer Mark Burnett (“Survivor,” “The Apprentice”). They sold the series to Syfy; which premiered in June 2012. JC has since sold two additional projects to Syfy, two new series to BIO, a series to NatGEO, a series on the Boston Police Department to TNT and the highly anticipated docu-series on Whitney Houston’s family to Lifetime Television. Jarrett Creative projects include a variety of formats including docu-soaps, reality narratives, competitions, and recreation elements.
StinkyKids comes from the creative mind of award winning author Britt Menzies, a mom who was inspired by her daughter’s simple request to paint her as a ballerina. StinkyKids is a brand with a fun, unique and fresh approach that teaches life’s lessons through its products, books and musical. Featuring diverse characters, StinkyKids are little stinKers who learn to make right choices through their childhood mistakes and who live by the motto: “Always Be a Leader of Good.” StinkyKids is an innovative brand that appeals to parents for the values it represents and to kids because the characters are real kids getting into real mischief.
