DreamWorks is bringing several pre-school series to Netflix's slate of animation. Though Not Quite Narwhal and Dewdrop Diaries aren't set to release until 2023, a show drops next month, which will undoubtedly serve to tide viewers over in the meantime.
The first trailer for Team Zenko Go was released today, previewing a fun and exciting series dropping in just under a month. In addition to confirming a March 15th release date for the 12-episode first season, the trailer also introduces audiences to the cast of heroes and do-gooders that the show is set to focus on.
We've included the official press release and images below ahead of the trailer for full context.
Niah, Ari, Ellie and Jax are members of Team Zenko Go, a secret squad of stealthy do-gooders who harness the art of distraction to perform anonymous acts of kindness for the unknowing residents of Harmony Harbor. These four kids have been taught by their mentor, Auntie Yuki, a special set of skills that allow them to do good deeds (or Zenkos) for others, making their town the happiest in the world. Like Auntie Yuki says "when we help people without them knowing, they start to think that the world is just a nicer place."
Team Zenko Go is produced by DreamWorks Animation and Mainframe Studios with Jack Thomas (Dragons Rescue Riders) serving as executive producer and showrunner. Michael Hefferon, Gregory R. Little, Kim Dent Wilder are also executive producers on the series.
