I was asked to re-create all the characters for the hit Children’s TV show ‘The Electric Company’. Like the classic Electric Company, the show will draw from pop culture – music, comedy, technology and celebrities – to create a playful, hip, multi-media experience. Targeting children ages 6 through 10, The Electric Company aims to teach basic reading and grammar skills to the young viewers.
In 1971 on the heels of its fabulously successful Sesame Street, the Children’s Television Workshop created The Electric Company. With its roots in Motown Sound, Broadway and Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, The Electric Company drew attention for six years as the most popular instructional television show. It would win an Emmy for Outstanding Children’s Series, and its soundtrack album earned a Grammy.
