Sprout, the 24-hour preschool channel, is excited to debut “The Chica Show” on Saturday morning, November 24th at 11:30am ET. Starring Chica the Chicken, the popular host from Sprout’s hit “The Sunny Side Up Show,” and featuring the voice of Mario Lopez, “The Chica Show” is a mix of live action and animation. It follows the adventures of Chica and her cast of family and friends as they explore The Costume Coop, where imagination runs wild!
“The Chica Show,” which promotes social-emotional development through creative play, is Sprout’s latest original program and continues the network’s tradition of bringing quality entertainment to children and their families. “Chica had become such a superstar on The Sunny Side Up Show, that it only made sense to give her the starring role in her own show,” said Andrew Beecham, senior vice president of programming at Sprout. “As host of our live morning show, Chica receives thousands of interactions from fans every month in the form of emails, photos, birthday cards and weather reports, and she has quickly become one of preschool television’s most beloved characters.”
