Sprout has something new in store. Deadline reports the children’s network has ordered two new TV series, Powerbirds and Norm.
Part of Universal Kids’ new lineup, Powerbirds is an animated series “about two pet parakeets who live secret superhero lives, saving their neighborhood (and the world) one kind deed at a time.”
The network has also ordered Norm, a stop-motion animated comedy that follows Norman, a forest handyman who “fixes the problems of its highly eccentric animal characters with a touch of magic and a can-do attitude.” Both Powerbirds and Norm are slated to debut on Universal Kids in 2019.
What do you think? Are you familiar with Sprout? Do you think Powerbirds and Norm will be a good fit for the rebranding network?
