CBC Kids has given the green light to a new 10-episode digital-first series from marblemedia.

Holy Baloney, a three-minute series for kids, will launch in spring 2018 on CBC Kids and on the CBC TV app.

Produced by marblemedia’s Matt Hornburg and Mark Bishop, alongside Gaming Show (In My Parents Garage) creator Jesse Shamata, the series features kids offering answers to poignant everyday questions, like why is the sky blue. Viewers will be tasked with deciding which answer is right and which two are baloney.

The series is a mix of live-action and mixed media, with the kids’ answers visually played out throughout each episode.

International rights for the series are held by marblemedia’s Distribution 360.

Marblemedia recently premiered its primetime game show Just Like Mom and Dad on YES TV in Canada and BYUtv in the U.S. The reboot of Just Like Mom features parent/kid pairs competing in interactive trivia and bake-off competitions.
