Amazon Announces Kids’ Pilot Season
Amazon announced the lineup for its fall kids’ pilot season, which is scheduled to debut later this year exclusively on Amazon Video in the U.S., UK, Germany, Austria, and Japan. Amazon customers will find a slate of animated pilots, including a preschool-aged show based on the beloved book series If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and The Numberlys, a story for preschoolers that follows best friends who encourage children to think beyond the way things are always done. Animated pilots for children ages 6–11 include Danger & Eggs, a show that chronicles the endless adventures of fearless D.D. Danger and her ever-cautious best friend, a giant talking egg; Eddie of the Realms Eternal, a story that centers around a meek teen who balances a hero’s life while dealing with the ordinary pressures of middle school life; Everstar, a journey that follows an adventurous 12-year-old girl who accidentally intercepts an intergalactic SOS signal and is brought aboard a rogue spaceship that travels the universe; and Yoyotoki HappyEars!, a story that follows a fox whose family accidentally lands on Mytholopia and encounters its unusual citizens who stir up their lives in extraordinary ways. These pilots—along with primetime pilots Edge, Good Girls Revolt, Highston, One Mississippi, Patriot and Z—will debut November 5 on Amazon Video.
Amazon customers are once again invited to watch and provide feedback on the shows they want to see turned into full series for Prime members. All pilots will be available via the Amazon Video app for TVs, connected devices, and mobile devices, or online at Amazon.com/amazonvideo.
PlayCHIC Fashion Show Set for ChiTAG
The Chicago Toy & Game Week announces the fourth annual playCHIC Fashion Show taking place on November 19, 2015, at the Alhambra Palace at 7p.m. Chicago-based fashion designers, Peach Carr and Michelle Tan, will show off their own original, toy-inspired designs at this year’s show. The playCHIC Fashion Show gives fashion designers the chance to combine their creativity and playfulness with top toy and game brands that will be featured at the Chicago Toy and Game Fair (ChiTAG), to create a runway look. This year’s look for PlayCHIC will be inspired by Spin Master’s Meccano.
Peach Carr is a self-taught fashion designer from Chicago that burst onto the fashion scene on Season 2 and Season 8 All Stars of Project Runway. Her designs reflect the music and vibe from her childhood in the 1960s and 1970s.
Michelle Tan, one of Chicago’s fastest growing designers, launched her fashion line 15 years ago under her own name. Celebrities, including Sarah Jessica Parker, Scarlett Johansson, and Tamron Hall, have worn her designs and handbags.
