Created by Tohn (“American Idol”) and Scharf (“Moon and the Son: An Imagined Conversation”), “Do, Re & Mi” showcases original tracks performed by Bell (Princess Anna in Disney’s “Frozen”), Tohn and other guests. The series follows three birdie best friends named Do, Re & Mi who live in a world filled with rhythm, beats and melodies. Every episode of the series starts with an adventure and ends in a song.
“What better way to jumpstart our new animation division than by joining with Kristen Bell and her creative, innovative partners Michael, Jackie and Ivan who brought Do, Re & Mi to our attention,” commented Atlan. “We believe ‘Do, Re & Mi’ will connect kids to music in a fun, new way across all screens.”
