Premieres and streams July 15

Produced by WGBH Boston, the newest PBS KIDS series, MOLLY OF DENALI, will premiere July 15 as the first nationally distributed children’s series in the U.S. to feature a Native American lead character. MOLLY OF DENALI follows 10-year-old Molly Mabary, her dog Suki and her friends Tooey and Trini on their daily adventures, from fishing and building snow forts, to delivering a camera to friends on a volcano via dog sled. Designed to help kids ages 4-8 develop knowledge and skills for interacting with informational texts, the series uses books, field guides, historical archives, maps, charts, posters and more to enhance each of Molly’s adventures.

The Molly of Denali website and digital games will also launch in July, followed by the Molly of Denali mobile app in August, through which kids will use informational text to fish for salmon, create beaded designs and care for sled dogs.

A podcast prequel to the series from WGBH, in partnership with PRX and Gen-Z Media, will also be available on mollyofdenalipodcast.org and on your favorite podcast app starting May 30.
