PBS KIDS Offers Sneak Peek of its First Series Dedicated to the Arts and Creativity: PINKALICIOUS & PETERRIFIC

Episodes from the show are available on PBS KIDS' streaming video platforms ahead of February 19 one-hour premiere on PBS stations nationwide

Los Angeles, CA, January 16, 2018 - Today at the Television Critics Association Press Tour, PBS KIDS announced a first look at its newest animated series, PINKALICIOUS & PETERRIFIC, based on the best-selling Pinkalicious book series by author Victoria Kann. In the lead-up to its February 19 broadcast premiere, PBS KIDS is giving fans a special sneak peek on pbskids.org and the PBS KIDS Video App. Three full-length 11-minute stories are now available; additional stories will roll out on digital platforms every Friday until February 9, when PBS stations will broadcast a special, one-hour series premiere event. The series' on-air premiere will feature five 11-minute stories, one of which guest stars Marlo Thomas, who voices a dragon named Gertie.

PINKALICIOUS & PETERRIFIC follows the adventures of Pinkalicious and her brother, Peter, as they explore the town of Pinkville with their neighborhood friends. The imaginative Pinkalicious finds creative opportunities everywhere she looks, with Peter and her friends Jasmine, Rafael and Kendra in tow. She inspires everyone around her to be creative and find imaginative solutions to problems, and expresses herself in ways that encourage children to do the same.

"At PBS KIDS, we seek to inspire kids through storytelling," said Linda Simensky, Vice President, Children's Programming, PBS. "PINKALICIOUS & PETERRIFIC offers us the opportunity to put the spotlight on arts and creativity in a way we've never done before, to highlight the importance of the arts as part of a whole-child learning approach and encourage kids to express that creativity in their daily lives."

Produced by WGBH Boston, PINKALICIOUS & PETERRIFIC encourages kids to engage in self-expression and the creative arts, covering areas such as music, dance, theater and visual arts. Each episode includes two 11-minute stories featuring Pinkalicious, Peter and their friends, and one live-action interstitial. The interstitials will feature real-life kids creating art, as well as profiles of professional artists. Renowned musicians such as blues recording artist Vaneese Thomas, dancers such as New York City Ballet principal Ramar Amasar, and author-illustrator Victoria Kann are among the artists featured.

"With this new PBS KIDS series, kids can explore their own creativity and connect with the wonderful world of Pinkalicious, Peter and their friends," said Dorothea Gillim, Executive Producer, PINKALICIOUS & PETERRIFIC, WGBH Boston.

PBS KIDS and local stations across the country support the entire ecosystem in which children learn, including their teachers, parents and community. PINKALICIOUS & PETERRIFIC is part of a multiplatform media experience that will include digital content for kids, parents and teachers, beginning in February. PINKALICIOUS & PETERRIFIC will offer a variety of games at pbskids.org and on the PBS KIDS Games App, as well as clips and full episodes on pbskids.org and the PBS KIDS Video App, which is accessible on a variety of mobile devices and platforms such as Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV and Chromecast. A PINKALICIOUS & PETERRIFIC app, Party with Pinkalicious!, a creative app experience that will support the series, will also launch in February. Parent resources will be available on the PBS KIDS for Parents website, and PBS LearningMedia will offer classroom-ready materials for teachers, including video excerpts, games, tips and printable activities.
