Cookie Jar Lands Two New Shows
Los Angeles, CA -- Cookie Jar is pleased to announce the representation of two brand new live action kid/tween television series: Deadtime Stories and The Jadagrace Show.
Deadtime Stories is an anthology series based on the goosebump-inducing book series of the same name by Annette and Gina Cascone. The subjects of the series range from hauntings to monsters to supernatural occurrences and everything in between. The popular book series is published in hardcover, paperback and digital by major publisher Tor Books, a division of St. Martin’s Press/Macmillan Group, in addition to being carried by Scholastic. Hill & Brand Kids is the production studio behind the series, and founders David and Scott Hillenbrand have a long track record across multiple genres including extensive work on hit kids shows such as Spider-Man (Animated), Sweet Valley High and Power Rangers. Cookie Jar will be haunting at MIPCOM with this spooktacular show.
The Jadagrace Show is a live action musical sitcom starring Jadagrace as a 12-year-old musical sensation whose amateur videos go viral. A TV Network takes notice and offers her the chance to produce her own television variety show for kids, incorporating music, dance, and comedy. Produced through Fun World Media by Joseph Merhi and Kerry Gordy, 14 episodes are in the can with 12 more episodes currently in progress. Represented by Kerry Gordy of Motown and Warner Bros. fame, this incredible little girl displays her extraordinary dance moves in her “Gimme My Money” music video, which has generated over 1,000,000 YouTube views. She just inked a million dollar record deal with the Chairman of Epic Records, LA Reid, and Sony Entertainment will distribute her albums internationally. Her first single and video release “Run Dat Back” features Redfoo of the world-renowned super group LMFAO. Cookie Jar is primed to take this show viral at MIPCOM.
“Cookie Jar scouts the earth for great talent and strong creative material,” said Cookie Jar President and COO, Toper Taylor. “Scott and David Hillenbrand along with authors Annette and Gina Cascone have created a 6-11 spooky-light television series in Deadtime Stories that strikes a perfect tone for the global kids channels. Joseph Merhi and Kerry Gordy have identified an extraordinarily gifted young lady in Jadagrace, and they have created the perfect creative auspices for her to thrive. The Jadagrace Show is exactly what kids are demanding around the world.”
