FROM THE CREATORS OF KATE & MIM-MIM
TORONTO, Aug. 28, 2019 /CNW/ - Family Jr. is putting the pedal to the metal this fall with the premiere of the brand new animated series Rev & Roll. Created by mom and dad duo, Scott and Julie Stewart (the masterminds behind Kate and Mim-Mim), the action-packed show follows 8-year-old Rev, and his best friend Rumble – a powerful truck with a puppy personality – as they go on wild adventures in their town of Fender Bend! The preschool series races into Family Jr.'s fall lineup on Monday, September 2 at 8 a.m. ET, airing alongside new episodes of Grizzy and The Lemmings and Mighty Mike.
Rev & Roll was created by Canadian parents who saw a gap in the kids' entertainment world for a series inclusive of free-range freedom and outdoor adventure themes. Watch an interview with the creators here.
Surrounded by mountains to climb, canyons to jump, forest trails to blaze, and miles of open road, Rev and Rumble's world is a high-octane wilderness playground fueled by imagination, exploration and full-throttle fun. As part of a ranching family and the tight-knit community of Fender Bend, the duo live in a revved up world where vehicles live side-by-side with their human best friends. Whether they're helping Rev's family on the ranch, wheeling around town, or roaring through the surrounding wilderness, each day brings epic adventures, new challenges and an important lesson to learn. Following the premiere, episodes of Rev & Roll will air daily at 8 a.m. ET and will also be available on Family Jr. OnDemand and the Family Channel App.
Rev & Roll headlines Family Jr.'s fall lineup, pulling up next to some of the network's most popular shows including Polly Pocket, Chip and Potato, Daniel Tiger's Neighbourhood, Grizzy and the Lemmings and Mighty Mike. The September schedule also features exciting adventures from Fireman Sam such as Fireman Sam: Alien Alert! The Movie and Fireman Sam: Set for Action airing on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the month. Check local listings for details.
