Amazon Studios has greenlit a test pilot for the original animated children’s series Sara Solves It, co-developed by WGBH and Out of the Blue Enterprises.
Sara Solves It is created by Emmy Award winner Carol Greenwald (Curious George, Arthur, Martha Speaks) and multiple Emmy Award nominee Angela C. Santomero (Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, Super Why!, Blue’s Clues). Both serve as executive producers of the new show, about brother and sister Sara and Sam as they solve mysteries that spring from the questions young children encounter in their daily lives.
Each mystery is an interactive, math-based puzzle that the home viewer can solve along with the characters
“We are excited to be part of Amazon Studios’ innovative approach of getting high-quality programming directly into the hands of parents and children,” said Greenwald, senior executive producer of children’s programs for WGBH.
There are now 12 pilots under way at Amazon Studios. Once completed, they will be posted on Prime Instant Video and Amazon Instant Video for customers to watch for free. Most pilots will also be available on Lovefilm U.K. and Lovefilm Germany. Customers who offer feedback will help decide which series Amazon Studios produces.
Amazon Studios continues to invite series creators to upload their proposals for comedy and children’s programming at studios.amazon.com/getting-started/series or submit them privately via Amazon Studios.
