TORONTO, ON – March 27, 2018 – Leading television producer marblemedia is pleased to announce that Holy Baloney, a play-along 10 episode, three-minute series for kids, has been greenlit by CBC Kids for a spring 2018 launch at CBC Kids and on the CBC TV App.
Produced by Matt Hornburg and Mark Bishop of marblemedia, along with Jesse Shamata, creator of the hit series Gaming Show (In My Parents Garage), Holy Baloney challenges viewers to guess the answers to everyday questions. Can you pick out fact from fiction? Truth from complete baloney? This Spring, you’ll be able to find out!
Each episode features three kids who take time out of their lunch hour to answer a poignant question about everyday things – each giving a different, hilarious response! The range of questions could include where something in the world comes from, why something is the way it is, or why people do the things they do.
The questions – and sometimes the answers – will be tricky for both kids and parents. It’s up to the viewers to watch the convincing answers of all three schoolyard experts and decide which answer is right, and which two are complete baloney. This kid friendly series is a mix of live-action and mixed media, as the imaginative answers are visually played out throughout each episode.
“marblemedia is always looking for fun, engaging and informative projects that appeal to a broad audience,” said Matt Hornburg, Co-CEO, marblemedia. “In Holy Baloney, we ask the big everyday questions – Why is the sky blue? Why do we shake hands? The type of questions we all asked as kids and sometimes don’t remember as adults, or would be surprised by the real answer. The series offers a fun way for inquisitive people of all ages to learn the answers to life’s toughest questions together.”
International rights for the series are held by marblemedia’s Distribution 360.
