Creating a television series is an ongoing column about the creation, development, and production of Justin Time, through Brandon’s experience as creator and art director of the show. For past articles and more info about Justin Time, click here.
First! Since I’m treating this wrap up as a landing page, here are the articles Ive done in this series:
Second! Justin Time is premiering on Sprout TV April 22, launching their Earth Week with a 2 hour marathon. You can read about it here. It is debuting later in July on NBC Kids, a new Saturday morning preschool block on the network, and in English Canada later this year. It’s currently airing around the world in various countries and languages. If you have preschool-aged kids of your own or know of any, I’d be grateful if you spread the word!
Third! Thank you. For reading all of this. I didn’t want this to be any sort of how-to on making a show - this was just about sharing how it all went down for me. We certainly didn’t do everything right, but that’s how it works. Some of you who work in animation, or television, or any field where you’re building projects of this size, might take something away from it. I hope, anyway.
And now, some more thanks. To the crew. To Frank and Mary. To Harold. To Alan and our writers. To Christine, Tracy and Jiro. To every department, the leads especially. To Dee, Gage, Jenna, Scott and our other voice talent. To our post facilities. To Family Channel. Seriously everyone, stay for the credits when the show ends. Everyone played an important role to make it what it is.
And that’s just season 1.
We’re currently in the middle of production on the second season. We’re starting to take the property into new places. We’ve made an app, we’re adding online content, and right now I’m creating some children’s books based on the show which should be released later this year. Lots of exciting stuff. Hopefully, a lot more to come, too.
If you decide to watch an episode once it airs (which would be amazing, thank you), please, let me know what you think.
Thanks for reading.
