Season Three of Biz Kid in production
FEDERAL WAY, Wash. (10/6/08)--The next season of Biz Kid$, a TV show that teaches kids how to make and manage money, is in editing and being delivered to American Public Television for broadcasting starting in January. At least 311 stations in 49 states will air the 13 new episodes of the 30-minute show, reports the Washington Credit Union League (FOCUS Oct. 1). Biz Kid$ is exclusively underwritten by America’s Credit Unions. The next key phase of program is outreach of the show and its complementing curriculum into classrooms, libraries, after-school programs, and so forth. To support that effort, the Washington Credit Union Foundation and the show's producers are offering credit unions a full master box set of the show's first two seasons--26 episodes. Each episode is contained on a separate DVD. Accompanying curriculum also is included on a separate CD. Credit unions, leagues and foundations are purchasing box sets to donate to libraries and resource centers of school districts to serve as a companion to the Biz Kid$ curriculum. Others are giving the set to after-school programs, summer camps, Boys & Girls Clubs, children’s hospitals, and daycare facilities. And others plan to use the DVDs in credit union branch lobbies. Credit unions can support in-branch screenings by posting customized Biz Kid$ posters or flyers with the times and dates of when the series broadcasts in your market, said the foundation. Collectively, credit unions must order a minimum of 100 master DVD box sets to secure the $50 per set price, which covers the costs of producing the master set and shipping.
