Snow Joe in development for APTN

From a media release:

marblemedia, BIG SOUL PRODUCTIONS AND APTN COLLABORATE WITH ALEXANDER BAR TO DEVELOP A NEW ANIMATED SERIES SNOW JOE

Award-winning content creator marblemedia, Big Soul Productions, a leading producer of Aboriginal programming and Aboriginal Peoples Television Network (APTN), collaborate with Alexander Bar, creator of the hit series Lunar Jim and Mike the Knight, to develop a new animated preschool series, Snow Joe.

“Through delightful storytelling, Snow Joe provides a wealth of opportunity to celebrate relevant touchstones for First Nations Peoples by inviting a wider global audience to discover a vibrant culture through its engaging characters and themes that are relatable to many cultures today,” said Mark Bishop, Co-CEO and Executive Producer, marblemedia.

Set in the wintery wonderland of Snowflake Peak in the Mackenzie Mountains, all 11-minute episodes of Snow Joe follow Joe, an Aboriginal boy of Dene descent who dreams of becoming a hero – just like the ones in his grandfather’s stories.

With a talent for turning the simplest activities into derring-do fun adventures, Joe and his friends take on all obstacles this world of snow
has in store for them by developing their own brand of role-play. Wearing
homemade hero gear inspired by their favourite Dene animal heroes marks the
transition between hanging out and empowering Joe and his friends – the
spirited girl next-door Nina and the reliably accident-prone Buddy – to tap
into their unique abilities, all the while respecting their heritage.
