Canadian pubcaster CBC Kids has ordered for a third season of the hit live-action series Scout & The Gumboot Kids as well as two new spinoff series from Vancouver-based production company Imagine Create Media.
Backed by both The David Suzuki Foundation and the UCLA Global Media Centre for Social Impact, Scout & The Gumboot Kids follows a curious stop-motion animated mouse and a group of real kids who embark on outdoor adventures to solve nature’s mysteries.
The mindfulness-themed show’s co-creators and showrunners are the husband-and-wife team of Eric Hogan and Tara Hungerford while Imagine Create’s Tracey Mack serves as head of production on the five-minute episodic series.
Two spinoffs from the producing team of Hogan and Hungerford like Daisy & The Gumboot Kids and Jessie & The Gumboot Kids have also been given the go ahead signal by CBC Kids.
The first is a digital series starring Scout’s best mouse friend and crafting expert, Daisy, who is voiced by Ashleigh Ball. The 20 x three-minute series is currently in production and will premiere for the web and TV in spring 2018. An online iOS and Android game called DIY Daisy will also be released with the show.
Jessie & The Gumboot Kids is a series of 40 music interstitials featuring performances by Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) award-winning singer-songwriter Jessie Farrell alongside Scout, Daisy and the Gumboot Kids. CBC Kids will air the spinoff in January 2018.
