The Disney Channel is adding a new show to the preschool targeted block of programming known as Playhouse Disney. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Imagination Movers will star a New Orleans-based music group of the same name.
The series will be an SNL for toddlers. It will feature musical performances, stories, and skits. Segments will also encourage the viewers' participation with problem solving puzzles.
The band comprises former journalist Rich Collins, former teacher Scott Durbin, architect Dave Poche and Scott "Smitty" Smith, a New Orleans firefighter who was a member of the Hurricane Katrina search-and-rescue team. Three of the band members lost their homes, production office, instruments and props to Katrina.
The series begins shooting in October. You can look for it to hit the air sometime in early 2008.
