Cable company Cheddar and Genius Brands International are set to launch Warren Buffett’s Secret Millionaires Club, a kids’ series that will be made available across Cheddar’s OTT partners.
The 26 half-hour episodes will be made available across Cheddar’s partners Sling TV, Hulu, YouTube TV, Philo and fuboTV. It will continue the series throughout 2018 and 2019. It will debut June 23.
Warren Buffett’s Secret Millionaires Club, created with and starring an animated Warren Buffett, features a group of kids who have adventures in business, mentored by Warren. The series empowers kids by helping them understand the world they live in, teaching them about the impact their decisions have on their own lives…and teaching them to have the confidence to be the best they can be.
The series makes it fun for kids to learn to think like entrepreneurs and features the guest talents of Bill Gates, Jay-Z, Shaquille O’Neal, Nick Cannon, Gisele Bündchen and Kelly Rowland.
The celebrities play themselves; provide their own voiceovers and lend the lessons of their own life experiences in the context of stories that are relatable and inspirational to kids.
“Weekend mornings on Cheddar is now Warren Buffett cartoons for kids,” said Jon Steinberg, Founder and CEO of Cheddar. “Unlike some cable news networks, we don’t air infomercials on weekends. Instead kids and families can learn from the greatest investor in history in animated form on all our OTT platforms like Sling, Hulu, YouTube TV, and Philo! I am thrilled we have acquired and air the greatest business cartoon ever made.”
Mark Shoeman, director of distribution at Genius Brands, said: “We are thrilled to partner with Cheddar to further expand the distribution of our award-winning series, Warren Buffett’s Secret Millionaires Club, delivering its empowering messages and entertainment value to kids across the US.”
