Genius Brands and Tankee have signed a deal to produce an exclusive, 12-episode series featuring leading "Roblox" influencers.
The duo first partnered in 2019 to bring a slate of Tankee Originals to Kartoon Channel! resulting in the "Roblox"-inspired series "Big B Statz Roblox Challenges" and "Sally Plays Roblox."
"At Kartoon Channel! we pride ourselves on delivering the latest and most innovative content to our viewers," says Jon Ollwerther, general manager, Kartoon Channel! at Genius Brands. "' Roblox' has become a phenomenon that has captured the attention of children across the globe, and we are thrilled to be working with Tankee to develop and share new episodes to meet the growing demand from viewers."
"We've grown our partnership with Genius Brands over two years, and we're proud to develop our first-ever co-production with Kartoon Channel! for a new 'Roblox’-themed series," says Gerald Youngblood, founder, Tankee. "Tankee's dedication to becoming the top producer of kid-safe gaming content came from connecting with my son through gaming and a desire to celebrate gaming content with kids around the world. We weren't alone and have seen that many kids and families have a huge appetite for 'Roblox' and other family-friendly gaming content."
The new series will be available for streaming on Kartoon Channel! in June.
