Having enjoyed success together over the last year putting out books for children, Kirk Cameron and Texas-based publisher Brave Books are now planning to try their hand at television. They launched a crowdfunding campaign today for a show called Adventures with Iggy and Mr. Kirk, which "will teach solid morals, like Mr. Roger's Neighborhood," according to a press release.


The show is to feature Cameron, himself a father of six adult children and veteran of Christian movies like Left Behind, Fireproof and Lifemark, actress Leigh-Allyn Baker (Good Luck Charlie, Family Camp) and a puppet iguana named Iggy. Producers aim to provide a wholesome alternative to what the aforementioned release calls Hollywood's "deranged agenda" that "indoctrinates" children with - among other things - a 253% increase in homosexual characters on TV shows since 2011.


This new program, on the other hand, plans to not only entertain the little ones, but also "build their character" by providing "a greater sense of right and wrong" via a focus on virtues "like courage, honesty, discernment, forgiveness, and empathy," all of which will be presented "through a Biblical and traditional lens." Each episode is to be set in a treehouse and feature adventures, animated clips, and guest stars.


The goal is to put out two full seasons - 20 total episodes, each running 22 minutes - in "the latter half of 2024" through Brave Books' download platform. That, of course, assumes that the crowdfunding campaign goes according to plan: the publishing company hopes to raise $2.5 million and launch production early this year.
