‘Hello, Jack! The Kindness Show’ coming to Apple TV+

Apple TV+ will expand its award-winning offering of premium Apple Originals for kids and families with “Hello, Jack! The Kindness Show,” a new live action series from creators Jack McBrayer (“30 Rock,” “Phineas and Ferb,” “Wreck-It Ralph” franchise) and Angela C. Santomero (“Blue’s Clues,” “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood”), author of “Radical Kindness” that aims to ignite kindness through exploring empathy, humor, playfulness and imagination.

Here’s how Apple describes the series: Anchored around Emmy Award winner Jack McBrayer’s infectious positivity and playful humor, “Hello, Jack! The Kindness Show” invites preschoolers into a world where a little act of kindness can change the world. Alongside special guest stars, Jack inspires kids to solve problems with kindness and heart. The series showcases stories where acts of kindness are shown through “The Three C’s” – caring, connecting and cascading – from one person to another. The series also features original songs from the Grammy Award-winning band, OK Go.

“Hello, Jack! The Kindness Show” is co-created and executive produced by McBrayer and Santomero. The series is produced by Emmy Award-winning 9 Story Media Group (“Blue’s Clues & You!,” “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood,” “Karma’s World”) and animated by its Oscar-nominated studio Brown Bag Films (“Doc McStuffins,” “Vampirina,” “Ada Twist, Scientist”), with Wendy Harris and Vince Commisso serving as executive producers. Emmy Award winner Guy Toubes will serve as showrunner. Junlei Li, the Saul Zaentz senior lecturer in early childhood education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, serves as the kindness and human connection expert on the series.

Apple TV+ is available on the Apple TV app in over 100 countries and regions, on over 1 billion screens, including iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod touch, Mac, select Samsung, LG, Sony and VIZIO smart TVs, Amazon Fire TV and Roku devices, Chromecast with Google TV, PlayStation and Xbox consoles, and at tv.apple.com, for $4.99 per month with a seven-day free trial. For a limited time, customers who purchase a new iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Mac or iPod touch can enjoy one year of Apple TV+ for free. This special offer is good for three months after the first activation of the eligible device.
