Cesar Millan is co-starring with his 16 year old son, Calvin, and a bunch of adorable dogs in the Nickelodeon series Mutt & Stuff. The live-action series is aimed at the preschool crowd and was created by Sid and Marty Krofft, the sibling team behind classic TV shows H.R. Pufnstuf, Land of the Lost, and Lidsville. Cesar Millan and Bradley Zweig, who’s also credited with creating the series along with the Kroffts, executive produce. Mutt & Stuff will debut on July 10, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT.
Commenting on their newest series, Marty Krofft said, “From the moment we met with the Millans it was clear that partnering with them was going to lead to something extraordinary. Mixing their dynamic talent with the unmatched appeal of puppies and the quirkiness of puppets, we knew that Mutt & Stuff would be a one-of-a-kind show that would pique the interest of preschoolers and enable us to connect with a new generation of kids.”
“Mutt & Stuff will capture the hearts and imaginations of preschoolers everywhere with its upbeat energy, heartwarming friendships and valuable lessons,” added Russell Hicks, President, Content Development and Production, Nickelodeon Group. “Sid and Marty Krofft have been entertaining kids for decades with shows that expertly blend fantasy and reality, and Mutt & Stuff truly embodies their colorful signature style.”
