The same studio that created the very popular series “The Chosen,” which chronicles the life of Jesus, is now working on a new kids’ show “to teach about the principles of freedom,” explained showrunner Daniel Harmon.
Harmon told Faithwire the forthcoming show, “The Tuttle Twins,” is based on the best-selling book series by the same name and drew inspiration from other shows like “The Magic School Bus,” “Phineas and Ferb,” and “The Simpsons.”
The team is endeavoring to create an animated series, Harmon said, that “hopefully will be something that kids choose over their entertainment at places like Disney+, YouTube, or Netflix” while “at the same time they’ll get education about principles of freedom in a way that they’ll never encounter in schools or in other places in culture.”
For Harmon, the development of this show has been personal. Growing up, Harmon recalled spending time with an uncle “who taught me a lot about history and principles of freedom” as well as “things that contributed to peace and prosperity.”
“But not everyone has that background,” the father of seven said, adding he felt he didn’t have many resources available to him when he tried to pass down that same tradition to his own children. That was, until he found Connor Boyack’s series “The Tuttle Twins.”
The show, which will be available beginning in the fall, features episodes focusing on topics like the proper role of government, the value of speech freedom, and the benefits of free trade and capitalism.
