Kline said: “‘Primos’ takes place in the summers of my childhood spent with my cousins under one roof, and the comedy that grew out of that wonderfully hectic setting. As a child, I didn’t see myself- same or my culture represented on screen, so I’m ‘excited to share my family dynamic through these new Disney characters and stories.’
Meredith Roberts, Senior Vice President / General Manager, Television Animation, Disney Branded Television, said: “It has been especially gratifying to see Natasha direct over 30 episodes of our # 1 series ‘Big City Greens’ while creating her own new show that carries her authentic comedic voice and her family’s culture and values. We look forward to passing it on to children and families around the world. “
Produced by Disney Television Animation, each half-hour “Primos” episode consists of two 11-minute stories. Tater’s aspirations and his larger-than-life imagination are visible through the entries to his super-secret diary, which transform his deepest thoughts into awe-inspiring animated sequences.
