TAG’s slate of series now in development includes:
The New Adventures of Jay Jay The Jet Plane: A CG animated comedy adventure series for preschoolers features STEM education and social-emotional. The series follows some of the original show’s favorites, including the playful plane Jay Jay and his pals Tracy, Snuffy, and Ricky Rescue. In addition, the series features a new look and introduces more characters and destinations.
Tutenstein: An adventure series for kids ages 8-12 follows a 12-year-old girl with a talking cat who becomes best friends with a 4,000-year-old-mummy boy. The show features adventure, mystery, and magic with a theme of families lost, found, and forever.

Earth to Eden: For preschoolers ages 4-6, the series follows 7-year-old Eden Brooks, a special girl who turns every day into an adventure with her “#GirlDad,” family, and friends. It explores themes of family, nature, friendship, and personal pride with the message, “living well is a lifelong adventure, and it’s best to enjoy the ride.”
Rubbernecks – An animated 3D stop-motion series for kids and families, the show is set in the town of Desperation, where residents are a quirky mixed bag that includes a snake, tortoise, roadrunner, and a few lizards. They all prove the hypothesis “that overexposure to intense heat can drive you nutty.” The series features art by Deane Taylor, the award-winning art director from the Oscar-nominated feature Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas.
