PBS Kids follows Alma’s Way

Alma’s Way debuts on PBS Kids late next year

US pubcaster PBS has greenlit a new animated series from US children’s prodco Fred Rogers Productions, which aims to foster self-awareness, responsible decision making and empathy in its audience.

Alma’s Way will premiere on the PBS Kids network towards the end of 2021 and was created by actor and writer Sonia Manzano, who played Maria on Sesame Street.

The series stars six-year-old Alma Rivera, a proud, confident Puerto Rican girl who lives in the Bronx with her parents and younger brother, Junior, as well as a diverse group of close-knit and loving friends, family and community members.

In each 11-minute story, Alma speaks directly to young viewers, sharing her observations and feelings, working through challenges and offering them a window into her everyday life.

Ellen Doherty and Sonia Manzano are executive producers. Jorge Aguirre (Goldie & Bear) is head writer. The series is animated by Pipeline Studios (Elinor Wonders Why).
