PBS announces new Mr. Rogers-inspired series for 2012

On July 31, 2011, PBS announced a new series for Fall of 2012 based on the beloved characters in Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood.  The premise of this multiplatform series is that Daniel Tiger and his neighbors in the Neighborhood of Make Believe are now adults with preschool children of their own.  According to the press release, “DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD, set to launch in Fall 2012 as part of PBS KIDS preschool line-up, will focus on preparing kids for school success.”  Additionally, the show will have cross-platform content including games and online resources at the PBS Kids website.

It sounds like this show will provide more than a nostalgic look at beloved Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood characters for parents.  I anticipate a show that will appeal to preschoolers as well as their parents.  As with other PBS Kids shows, I also anticipate of wealth of online opportunities to reinforce the lessons and messages delivered in the series.  Watch for this one next year! 🙂
