NFL Star Kurt Warner Gets Into The Kids' Animation Game
St. Louis Rams quarterback Kurt Warner is partnering with children's entertainment developer Back Home Studios to produce KURT WARNER'S GOOD SPORTS GANG, a series of CG-animated programs targeted to kids from preschool to age 10. The Christian values-based property features Kurt Warner as the coach of the eight "Good Sports," who have crazy adventures while promoting faith, self-esteem, good sportsmanship and ethical behavior. The first of the half-hour episodes will be available in spring 2003 on both DVD and VHS, with other releases to follow. Distribution will be provided by GoodTimes Entertainment, New York. In addition to the home videos, the GOOD SPORTS GANG will be extended into licensing and publishing, with a portion of proceeds to benefit the Kurt Warner First Things First Foundation.
