About Kid President:

Ten-year-old Robby Novak created a worldwide following after his moving video, “A Pep Talk from Kid President to You,” went viral. That video is part of a YouTube series titled “Kid President” that has more than 75 million total views. Kid President’s online series is based on the belief that kids have a voice that needs to be heard and together with grown-ups they can make the world a better place. One of Kid President’s core philosophies is to “treat everybody like it’s their birthday.”

“At the Hub Network, Robby’s Kid President platform is one that we think everyone can embrace, because he is charming, clever, funny, inspirational and very relevant to today’s kids and families,” said Margaret Loesch, President and CEO, Hub Network. “With over 75 million views, we know ‘Kid President’ has the kind of cross-generational appeal that will speak to our core audience of children who like watching our shows with their parents and families.”

“Kid President is all about getting kids and grown-ups to work together to make the world more awesome,” says Executive Producer Rainn Wilson. “This show is an amazing blend of humor and heart, and The Hub Network is the perfect place for us to continue our mission to give the world a reason to dance. Plus, the network sent us an industrial-sized freezer full of corndogs. And we will do just about anything for corndogs.”

About Awkward Family Photos

Childhood friends Mike and Doug began the blog in May 2009 after Mike saw an awkward vacation photo hung in his parents’ house. Realizing there were probably plenty of other people out there with their own awkward family images, the two friends decided to create a friendly place where everyone could come together and share their uncomfortable family moments. Thus, Awkward Family Photos was born. The authors started by posting a few of their own childhood photos and those provided by friends, and the site quickly took off and became an internet sensation; it now receives millions of visits daily and has published a #1 New York Times Bestseller.
