Votes are in… YouTube sensation “Kid President” is getting his own Hub series

The votes are in. YouTube sensation Kid President, aka 10-year-old Robby Novak, is getting his own series on Hub Network in June. The announcement was made by Kid President himself on, where else, his YouTube channel (http://youtu.be/M8PK61vBXMc). Kid President: Declaration of Awesome will feature the inspirational young diplomat promoting positivity among kids and adults in a similar docu-variety style as his YouTube channel, which has featured everyone from President Obama to Steve Carell to Beyonce. The series is exec-produced by actor Rainn Wilson (The Office) and Novak’s brother-in-law, show’s creator Brad Montague. SoulPancake will produce. Novak draws a global following of 75 million, which started building after his moving video, “A Pep Talk from Kid President to You,” went viral. How did Hub manage to seal the deal? Aside from appreciating the co-viewing possibilities, “the network sent us an industrial-sized freezer full of corndogs. And we will do just about anything for corndogs,” says Wilson.
