Maker chief Ynon Kreiz intros new slate of kids programming at the studio’s Newfront

Maker Studios is peppering its slate of new original programming with plenty of picks for young viewers. The studio, owned by the Walt Disney Company, is also working with Disney sibling Marvel to develop original digital content. Among the new programming unveiled at this week’s Maker Newfront:
* Maker Tales: Classic kids stories including Pinocchio, Hansel and Gretel, Red Riding Hood and Robin Hood are reimagined as music videos by Maker talent including Tessa Violet, Iman Crosson, Dodger and Timothy DeLaGhett.
* Nursery Rhyme Mashups: A sing-along series that combines classic nursery rhymes with modern musical genres.
* Polaris Animated Universe: Big names in online gaming and animation collide in this anthology series bringing mash-ups, parodies and fan-favorite moments to life from popular “Let’s Play” series and podcasts.
* Toddler Tonight: From the creators of “Convos with my 2-year-old,” this new comedy gives Entertainment Tonight, TMZ and Fashion Police the toddler treatment by putting a paparazzi lens on kids just doing their thing while adults provide comedic, color commentary along the way.
* Toy Detective: Live-action mystery adventure follows unboxing star EvanTube as he solves mysteries for toys with the help of sister Jillian and other YouTube friends. The EvanTubeHD Detective Agency quickly gets in over its head, falling victim to hijinks on their quest to solve crimes.
