Friday, February 1st, 2008

American Public Television (APT) will begin offering 60 episodes of the new children’s musical series “Raggs” on February 4, 2008.”‘Raggs’ is one of the most ambitious launches of a new children’s series in the history of APT,” says Cynthia Fenneman, President and CEO of American Public Television. “It’s rare to find an independent children’s TV series that has created so much content and at such a high level of quality. We are delighted to make “Raggs” available to the more than 350 independent public broadcast stations in the U.S.”The series stars five colorful canines – Raggs, Trilby, Pido, B. Max and Razzles – who play in a rock ‘n’ roll band and live together in a clubhouse with their wisecracking pet cat, Dumpster. The innovative format features live costumed characters, animated segments, interviews with children and music videos. Dr. Sholly Fisch, former VP of Program Research at Sesame Workshop, directs “Raggs” educational content which reinforces preschool academic and pro-social themes.Captivating music lies at the core of “Raggs,” with more than 200 original rockin’ songs that educate as well as entertain children and parents. The Raggs concept evolved from the success of The Raggs Band, which has played over 3,000 live concerts on four continents since 2001.For more information, check out the Raggs’ website
