A kids magazine series out of Canada called “We Are Savvy” has been officially greenlit by Youtube to become a new series on their premium web service, YouTube Red. The series will be hosted by Annie LeBlanc from the Bratayley YouTube channel and according to reports, the series will features segments on topics such as music, fashions, DIYs, lifestyle elements, and celebrity profiles/ interviews.
“We Are Savvy” already one season under its belt which premiered on Canada’s Family Channel, the kids network owned by producer and distributor DHX Media. YouTube, however, announced iy acquired the series for a 13 episode second season which has entered production as a YouTube Red Original. The YouTube deal means the show will be on Red in the U.S., Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and Korea, and other territories as the service expands its footprint.
Nadine Zylstra, from the YouTube Red Originals team, said,
“We loved the concept of ‘We Are Savvy,’ and we’re excited to bring the first magazine-style show to YouTube Red. We believe the inspirational girl power message will resonate with audiences.”
DHX’s content and distribution boss Josh Scherba added,
“’We Are Savvy’ has a fresh, positive energy and a lively magazine format that makes it a perfect fit for YouTube Red and its audience.”
Canada’s B Minors Productions produces “We Are Savvy,” and DHX distributes it. There is currently no release date for the second season on YouTube Red but it is on the way!
