Produced by Mighty Picnic and Pipeline Studios, “Lyla in the Loop” is a funny and engaging new animated series for kids ages 4 to 8. The show follows Lyla, a 7-year-old girl, who lives in a big city with her close-knit family, fantastical blue sidekick Stu, and a host of quirky characters in her community, who use creative and strategic problem-solving and critical thinking skills to address a range of everyday problems together. The new series debuted on PBS KIDS Feb. 5 in both English and Spanish.

“Lyla is curious and resourceful, and when it comes to figuring out solutions to everyday problems, she doesn’t give up, even when it takes several tries to get it right,” said Sara DeWitt, senior vice president and general manager of PBS KIDS. “We know audiences will quickly be drawn to Lyla’s determination and can-do-attitude, and we’re excited to introduce this warm, funny, and smart series to our viewers.”

“Lyla in the Loop” centers on Lyla and her family — mom Lydia and dad Louis, who run Loops Lunch diner; older twin sisters Liana and Louisa; younger brother Luke; and sidekick Stu, who always does exactly, literally, what was asked. With her family and best friend Everett Phan, Lyla tackles all sorts of challenges, from building her own homemade carnival games using repurposed materials, to riding along and lending a hand on the neighborhood trash and recycling route, to making a puppet show that recreates the Jamaican folktale, Anansi and the Goat.
