Sprout, the first 24-hour network for preschoolers, has green-lit Terrific Trucks, the newest addition to its increasing portfolio of original series. Produced by Toronto-based Breakthrough Entertainment, Terrific Trucks is a live action series that celebrates preschoolers’ fascination with big construction vehicles. The stars of the new series are actual life-size trucks with big personalities: a dump truck; a front end loader; a digger; a semi; and a mini front-end loader – each truck is customized and has its own unique personality. As Sprout celebrates its 10th birthday in 2015, the network will finish out the year doubling its current volume of original programming.
Each episode of TerrificTrucks follows five truck friends from their morning meeting at their quarry homebase to actually doing the work on site – whether grading a highway, digging a tunnel, or moving houses. In a fun, exciting and immersive environment that showcases the trucks in a close up style, important lessons will be shared as the trucks overcome obstacles and work together as a team on tough projects. Production has begun and principle photography commences in May 2015 in Canada.
