MUMBAI: Stirring up the inquisitive and adventurous side of the kids, ZeeQ is all set to launch, Jack and Rolie Polie Olie. Premiering on 19 May, Jack will be aired on Mondays and Tuesdays at 2:00 pm and Rolie Polie Olie will be telecast from Monday to Thursday at 10:00 am.
Jack is a comedy adventure series about a curious explorer from another world who wishes to learn about Earth and why things are the way they are. He lives a normal life with his two companions in his home in Beano, a small asteroid that orbits the earth. Unbeknownst to all parents on Earth, he quietly tunes in with the help of CHIP to search for and monitor little mysteries for Earth’s children. When one of those questions strikes his fancy, he goes on a mission to investigate, and unravels the mysteries.
Together with his two Earth buddies and his alien pet, Jack finds out answers to complicated questions like why our tummies rumble or what happens to the rain.
Rolie Polie Olie, on the other hand, centers around the Polie Family, who live in a teapot-shaped house in a geometric world named ‘Planet Polie’ where the robot Olie learns life lessons and has wacky adventures while growing up. These often include his younger sister Zowie, his inventor father Mr. Percy Polie, his hard-working mom Polina Polie, his fun-loving grandfather Pappy, and his dog, Spot.
ZeeQ channel head Subhadarshi Tripathy said, “We are glad to bring these internationally recognized shows to India. The shows aim to create compelling stories through imaginative exploration. Our endeavor is to bring world class content that facilitates all-round development of children. The new shows are introduced in line with our objective.”
