Family-Friendly Animated Series About 5 Diverse Tweens Seeking the “Big Time” Finds New Home on Netflix
First of its kind new 3D animated urban music series Da Jammies is now streaming across the country, exclusively on Netflix.
Combining hip-hop dance, music and fashion in a way never before seen in animation, Da Jammies follows five diverse ‘tweens from the suburbs attending a performing arts middle school, who form a group in hopes of making it to the ‘big time.’ With support from their genius friend Einny, Da Jammies — Novelist, Dolla, MoMo, Seven and Lala — study singing, dancing and music to prepare for a run at superstardom, learning big life lessons along the way. Together they learn that the road to success, while a bumpy one, can still be navigated with hard work, dedication and most of all belief in oneself.
Da Jammies tackles the sometimes difficult issues of growing up today, such as bullying, identity, self esteem, homelessness and other real world challenges but never loses its fun approach. The vibrant 3D animation, multicultural cast, relatable subject matter and skillful choreography create a world that engages young viewers, providing them with role models they can look up to and learn from — but most importantly, dream with.
The voice actors who bring Da Jammies to life include Aulsondro Hamilton (Novelist), William Chapman (Dolla), Dani Nicolet (LaLa), Alisa Reyes (MoMo), Anderson Johnson, Jr. (Seven) and Shane Tsurugi (Einny), along with guest stars Darius McCrary (as Principal Cransberry), Buddy Lewis (as Klondell the security guard), and Kel Mitchell (as Mike Fresh). In addition, special cameo appearances are made by rap legends Kurtis Blow and Yolanda “YoYo” Whitaker, actors Tommy “Tiny” Lister, Kyla Pratt, and the late James Avery.
Da Jammies is the perfect family programming– not only does it appeal to younger audiences but it also entertains the kid within all of us.
Da Jammies was co-created by Aulsondro “Novelist” Hamilton and William “Dolla” Chapman II for Toon Farm Animation.
