Molly of Denali was announced 5/9/18 by PBS and will debut nationwide in the summer of 2019 on PBS.

The show follows a young Alaska native girl as she goes about life in the fictional town of Qyah Alaska. The intent of the show is to bring Alaska native voices to the forefront of production and to be involved with the content.

According to PBS:

Each episode will include two 11-minute stories as well as interstitial content – including live-action segments featuring real children and regions in Alaska. The series is currently in production of 38 half-hour episodes and a one-hour special.

The series is designed to help kids ages 4-8 develop knowledge and skills for interacting with informational texts through video content, interactive games and real-world activities. In each episode, Molly’s life and adventures are enhanced, illuminated and broadened by using and creating a variety of informational texts, including books, online resources, field guides, historical archives, indigenous knowledge from elders, maps, charts, posters, photos, and more. Molly also shares the information that she gathers through a vlog, offering short-form videos in which she shares aspects of her life in Alaska with kids in the lower 48 states and around the world.
