Mixed-Me (adapted from the book by Taye Diggs) is a new cross-platform series designed for kids and families to talk about race. In each episode, Mixed-Up Mike and friends are confronted with a challenge. As they explore their community, they make important discoveries about diversity, encouraging one another to embrace what makes us unique. At SxSw, this fireside chat with EP Megan Cunningham and Director Michele Stephensen will detail their the cross-platform production approach, how they expanded the concept from book to interactive digital and TV series. They'll also discuss the challenges of navigating complex story issues like race using humor and art.
