Genius Brands International has announced a new AI-generated animated “shorts” series based on the original children’s show, Warren Buffett’s Secret Millionaires Club, launching on Kartoon Channel!, YouTube and Genius Brands’ social media channels on May 15, 2023.
The Warren Buffett’s Secret Millionaires Club shorts will be produced by Genius AI Studio, utilizing various AI tools and pulling from stories co-created with, and voiced by, Warren Buffett for the original Secret Millionaires Club series, which focused on teaching enduring life lessons around financial literacy to children. Aimed at children aged 4-12 and their families, Secret Millionaires Club Minis combine cutting-edge technology, creative storytelling, and short-form vertical video, bringing a whole new format to the children’s entertainment space. Each video will educate children worldwide, and feature fun and interesting lessons and facts around business and money. Shorts will start rolling out May 15.
Genius Brands is excited to bring this timeless series to market, using cutting-edge AI technology to reimagine the original into a snackable 1-minute format and a style we will be seeing much more of in the future. AI provides a significant cost-cutting opportunity in production, as well as content expansion initiatives to fuel the Genius Networks programming pipeline. AI is the next big thing in children’s entertainment and with its innovative use, Secret Millionaires Club Minis will be a hit with kids and parents alike around the world!
Secret Millionaires Club Minis follows up the recently announced Kidaverse Fast Facts, Genius Networks’ debut into AI produced content, launching this month. Kidaverse Fast Facts will include new and exclusive shorts hosted by History Henry, Science Sally and Sporty Steve, and like Secret Millionaires Club Minis, each video will educate children worldwide, featuring fun and interesting lessons and facts about science, history, music, literature, and more.
