Disney is working on a brand new half hour animated series titled “Primos.” The series is being created and executive produced by Natasha Kline, who has previously worked on Big City Greens and South Park.
According to Deadline, the story is based on Kline’s childhood experiences with her extended multicultural Mexican American family. The two 11 minute stories follow Tater, an eccentric 10-year-old girl with big dreams and, unbeknownst to her, a certain “it factor” that makes her exceptional. When her 12 cousins (“primos” in Spanish) move in for the summer, they help her discover just what it is. Tater’s aspirations and larger-than-life imagination are seen via entries in her super-secret diary, which turn her deepest thoughts into grandiose animation sequences.
“Primos is set in childhood summers spent with my cousins under one roof, and the comedy that’s borne from that wonderfully hectic setting,” Kline said. “As a kid, I didn’t see myself or my culture represented onscreen, so I’m excited to share my family dynamic through these new Disney characters and stories.”
“It’s been especially gratifying to see Natasha directing more than 30 episodes of our #1 series Big City Greens while also creating her own new show that bears her authentic comedic voice and her family’s culture and values. We’re looking forward to delivering it to kids and families worldwide,” added Meredith Roberts, SVP and GM, Television Animation, Disney Branded Television
No network has been announced as of yet, but the series will be produced by Disney Television Animation
