From a media release:
Family Jr.Â is putting the pedal to the metal this fall with the premiere of the brand new animated seriesÂ Rev & Roll. Created by mom and dad duo,Â Scott andÂ Julie StewartÂ (the masterminds behindÂ Kate and Mim-Mim), the action-packed show follows 8-year-old Rev, and his best friend Rumble â€“ a powerful truck with a puppy personality â€“ as they go on wild adventures in their town of Fender Bend! The preschool seriesÂ races into Family Jr.’s fall lineup onÂ Monday, September 2Â atÂ 8 a.m. ET, airing alongside new episodes ofÂ Grizzy and The LemmingsÂ andÂ Mighty Mike.
Rev & RollÂ 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 creatorsÂ 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 ofÂ Rev & RollÂ will airÂ daily atÂ 8 a.m. ETÂ and will also be available onÂ Family Jr. OnDemandÂ and theÂ Family Channel App.
Rev & RollÂ headlines Family Jr.’s fall lineup, pulling up next to some of the network’s most popular shows includingÂ Polly Pocket,Â Chip and Potato,Â Daniel Tiger’sÂ Neighbourhood,Â Grizzy and the LemmingsÂ andÂ Mighty Mike. The September schedule also features exciting adventures fromÂ Fireman SamÂ such asÂ Fireman Sam: Alien Alert! The MovieÂ andÂ Fireman Sam: Set for ActionÂ airing on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the month.
