(Talking Dead, @midnight). The pilot, which

exclusively for Prime members via the Amazon Prime Video app for TVs,
connected devices including Fire TV, mobile devices and online—Prime
members can also download the pilot to mobile devices for offline

Danger & Eggs follows the endless adventures of a fearless,
teal-haired girl named D.D. Danger (Aidy Bryant) and her ever cautious
best friend, a giant talking egg named Phillip (Eric Knobel). As the
daughter of world-renowned stunt daredevil, Roy Danger, D.D.
is following in his footsteps and is always chasing her
next big thrill. Luckily for her, Phillip is always there by her side
with jerry-rigged safety mechanisms to make her thrill-seeking dreams
come true. Together, they go in search of new adventures at their
favorite spot, Chicken Paw Park, which is home to Philip's mom Becky, a
gargantuan chicken. The first season finds D.D. and Phillip meeting a
raccoon with a thirst for technology, being sucked into a mysterious
underground science lab, discovering a lonely robot in an overgrown
garden, and taking on a famous zip line. Throughout their journey, they
overcome obstacles with the "Buddy System" because even though they are
polar opposites, their differences complement each other's strengths and
weaknesses to solve problems. Their Buddy System mantra says it all,
"You look out for me and I'll look out for you!"

"We are excited to introduce our first animated comedy for children ages
6-11 to our customers," said Tara Sorensen, Head of Kids Programming at
Amazon Studios. "We feel incredibly lucky to be working with the caliber
of creative talent behind this series."

"For us, the heart of Danger & Eggs is the friendship between
Phillip and D.D. that proves you can face fear and danger and have a
blast in the process because you are not alone," said Mike Owens. Adds
Shadi Petosky: "We can't believe we get to take out our anxiety on a
show--putting our inside voices into these characters and seeing if they
stay friends."

"I've been passionate about animation my whole life and to produce this
series with my animation company fulfills a lifelong goal," says Chris
Hardwick, Executive Producer. "This show is funny, touching, and has
incredible design--everything I've wanted to make."

Below are what customers have said about the Danger & Eggs
pilot:

  • "[My 8 year-old son] asked to watch this show at least four times! He
    loves it! I've watched it with him for at least three of those times."
  • "As a father of a little girl with anxiety issues, I really
    appreciated Phillip's portrayal. So often in cartoons there is shaming
    of nervousness or anxiety (ie: C'mon, don't be a wimp) but in Danger
    and Eggs
    , Phillip is just there. He's an anxious character and
    that's ok."
  • "My son loves this show! He's 6 and says he loves the characters and
    finds them very funny. He loves the art style and how crazy and fun it
    is."
  • "As a father of two young daughters, I was thrilled to see a show that
    revolves around a young girl going on playfully dangerous adventures
    without the need of an overly macho cohort saving her! Added points
    for the wonderful humor that is also incorporated for the older
    demographic without it being crude."
  • "My 10-year-old daughter and I both loved it! She appreciates the
    subtle humor and animation of this show and said she wants to watch
    more!"
