One thing about Jack McBrayer, there’s seriously no one better to host a kid’s show about kindness!
Hello Jack! The Kindness Show is a new, breakthrough live action series from creators Jack McBrayer and children’s TV veteran and author, Angela C. Santomero that aims to ignite kindness through exploring empathy, humor, playfulness and imagination.
McBrayer, who also is a Second City comedy troupe alumnus, a stand-up comedian, and best known for his role as Kenneth the Page on the hit series 30 Rock, emphasized that his latest project is a “sincere and earnest” effort to teach social and emotional lessons appropriate for preschoolers.
Anchored around Emmy Award nominee Jack McBrayer’s infectious positivity and whimsical humor, Hello, Jack! The Kindness Show invites preschoolers into a world where a little act of kindness can change the world. Alongside series regulars Jack McBrayer, Markita Prescott and Albert Kong who is recurring, special guest visitors include Paul Scheer and Sam Richardson. Jack inspires kids to solve problems with heart. Hello Jack! showcases stories where acts of kindness are shown through “The Three C’s” – caring, connecting and cascading. The series hopes to spread those c’s from one person to another. The series also features original songs from the Grammy Award-winning band OK Go.
When it comes to creating award winning Children’s programming, Angela C. Santomero is no slouch. Some of her credits include Blue’s Clues and Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood.
Season one of Hello Jack! The Kindness Show is now streaming on Apple TV+.
