Rockers Kiss are going family-friendly – they are teaming up with TV bosses for a new Hello Kitty children’s series.
The band first collaborated with the makers of the fictional cat character in 2010 to launch a range of products, including toys and electronics, entitled KISS x Hello Kitty – and now the partnership is moving to the small screen.
Executives at cable network The Hub have optioned the rights to a new series, which has the working title of Kiss Hello Kitty, and singer Gene Simmons is thrilled about the venture.
He says, “The Hub Network is the perfect home for the TV show, Kiss Hello Kitty. We are incredibly excited about this opportunity and want to make all our millions of fans worldwide proud of a show they can watch with the whole family.”
Bandmate Paul Stanley adds, “Knowing and viewing The Hub as I do daily with my three children, it is the perfect home for us to bring the KISS Hello Kitty juggernaut to yet another generation. I’m excited to develop this project with The Hub as it ensures it will have family appeal while keeping its brash and nurturing individuation.”
The TV show, which Simmons is slated to executive produce, will reportedly feature four of the characters living their rock ‘n’ roll dreams.
