marblemedia has teamed up with TVO, City Saskatchewan, Knowledge Network and The Jim Henson Company on a new preschool live-action series, Opie’s Home. Currently in production in Hamilton, Ontario, the series will premiere in 2017. Opie’s Home follows 4-year-old Opie as he plays, explores and discovers new things in and around his home. Viewers meet Opie’s parents, grandmother, and neighbourhood friends, including next door neighbour Mr. Kabashio, played by the much loved and Oscar-nominated Canadian actor Graham Greene (Dances with Wolves, Die Hard with a Vengeance). Opie’s Home is a spin-off of the award-winning series Hi Opie! (created by Barbara Slade, developed in partnership with TVOKids and produced in association with The Jim Henson Company), which features Opie, the fun-loving kindergartner voiced and operated by award-winning puppeteer Jordan Lockhart, as he ventures to kindergarten for the first time. In Opie’s Home, Opie brings home what he has learned in school and applies it in his life.
