Kids show starring Chris Burke in the works

From Creative Arts and Abilities:

Creative Arts and Abilities will produce an inclusive children's T.V. show called "Forever Friends" for kids ages 3-7.

The show will star Chris Burke (pictured), the actor with Down syndrome best known for his role as "Corky" on the ABC-TV hit series "Life Goes On" and also star and feature the music of award winning children's recording artists Joe and John DeMasi.

This unique show will feature people with and without disabilities both in front of and behind the camera. It will include music videos, sign language, skits and a special feature called "Down Right Great!" where the talents of children with and without disabilities will be highlighted.

The show will bring a message of love, friendship, tolerance and inclusion. Kids will sing and sign-along, celebrate abilities and learn that we are all more alike than we are different.

Deliverables: 7 episodes to be shown on the web and Public Access TV. Endorsement by disability groups in the US.
