TV Series that Makes Math Cool for Kids to Premiere January 15, 2011

OTTAWA, Jan. 11 /CNW/ - The countdown is on! Award-winning Ottawa-based production company GAPC Entertainment Inc.'s latest live action children's television series is set to make its international debut in just days. The Prime Radicals takes the mystery out of math and puts the fun back into learning for kids aged 6 to 8. The series is based on two cousins, and their wacky Uncle Norm, who embark on crazy adventures that always end up—somehow—being related to math.

"The Prime Radicals is unique in its approach to math education," says Hoda Elatawi, Senior Producer. "Our team is working closely with Dr. Lynda Colgan, Associate Professor in mathematics education from Queen's University, to develop the series."

The series features seasoned comedic actor Norm MacQueen as the zany Uncle Norm, along with 19-year-old Alanna Bale as Alanna, and 12-year-old Kevin Wang as Kevin.

The Prime Radicals was developed in conjunction with TVOKids. The series is also being produced in association with Knowledge Network, SCN and ACCESS Alberta; and with the financial participation of the Canada Media Fund, The Shaw Rocket Fund, The Bell Broadcast and New Media Fund, and the Ontario Media Development Corporation (Screen Content Initiative Program).

      - The series premiere dates and times are:
      - TVOKids: Saturdays starting January 15 at 3:30 pm and Sundays at 12:30 pm.
      - Saskatchewan Communications Network (SCN): Wednesdays starting January 19 at 12:00 and 12:15 pm, and 5:00 and 5:15 pm. The series will also air Saturdays at 2:00 pm.
