Amazon’s kids series ‘Danger And Eggs’ premieres on 30 June on Prime Video
MUMBAI: Online retail major and content creator Amazon’s original animated kids series ‘Danger And Eggs’ is scheduled to premiere on 30 June on Prime Video in the US and UK.
Featuring the voice talent of comedians Aidy Bryant as D.D. Danger and Eric Knobel as Phillip, the series will also include guest star voice talent from Weird Al, Lori Petty, Charlyne Yi. ‘Danger And Eggs’ is created by Mike Owens and Shadi Petosky.
‘Danger And Eggs’ follows the endless adventures of a fearless, teal-haired girl named D.D. Danger and her ever cautious best friend, a giant talking egg named Phillip. As the daughter of world-renowned stunt daredevil, Roy Danger, D.D. is following in his footsteps and is always chasing her next big thrill. Luckily for her, Phillip is always there by her side with jerry-rigged safety mechanisms to make her thrill-seeking dreams come true. Together, they go in search of new adventures at their favourite spot, Chicken Paw Park, which is home to Philip’s mom Becky, a gargantuan chicken.
The first season finds D.D. and Phillip meeting a raccoon with a thirst for technology, being sucked into a mysterious underground science lab, discovering a lonely robot in an overgrown garden, and taking on a famous zip line. Throughout their journey, they overcome obstacles with the “Buddy System” because even though they are polar opposites, their differences complement each other’s strengths and weaknesses to solve problems. Their Buddy System mantra says it all, “You look out for me and I’ll look out for you!”
“We are excited to introduce our first animated comedy for children ages 6-11 to our customers. We feel incredibly lucky to be working with the caliber of creative talent behind this series,” said Amazon Studios head of kids programming Tara Sorensen.
“For us, the heart of ‘Danger And Eggs’ is the friendship between Phillip and D.D. that proves you can face fear and danger and have a blast in the process because you are not alone,” said Mike Owens.
Shadi Petosky said, “We can’t believe we get to take out our anxiety on a show–putting our inside voices into these characters and seeing if they stay friends.”
“I’ve been passionate about animation my whole life and to produce this series with my animation company fulfills a lifelong goal. This show is funny, touching, and has incredible design–everything I’ve wanted to make,” said executive producer Chris Hardwick.
