Amazon Studios has added two new children’s series to its development slate– each one a celebration of the creative and inspiring adventures that kids can have in their own back yard or while walking down “Normal Street.”
Both shows were created by newcomers discovered via Amazon Studios’ open-door development process. Learn more about how to submit your own ideas here.
These new series join Buck Plaidsheep on the Amazon Studios Series Development Slate, which also features three comedies aimed at a grown-up audience.

Amazon Studios intends to add projects to its Series and Movie Development Slates on a regular basis. If you have an original script that you’d like to see considered, you may submit it privately or publicly. The Amazon Studios team will evaluate each submitted project and in 45 days decide whether or not to pay $10,000 to extend the initial option by 18 months and add the project to the Development Slate.
