Alpha Group, DHX Media get ready to Rev & Roll


China’s Alpha Group is partnering up with Canada’s DHX Media on a new CG-animated preschool property called Rev & Roll. The series was co-commissioned by DHX’s Family Jr. and Alpha Group’s Jiajia television channels in Canada and China, respectively. The first episodes of the 52 x 11-minute series are expected to be available to broadcasters later this year.

Here’s the plot synopsis:

Rev & Roll (52×11’) follows the adventures of eight-year-old Rev and his best friend Rumble – a rambunctious anthropomorphic truck with all the personality of a loyal and enthusiastic dog! Amped up and always raring to go, Rev and Rumble are an energized pair of truck-powered pals who are living the childhood dream on their family’s ranch, Accelerator Acres. As part of a ranching family and the tight-knit community of Fender Bend, Rev and Rumble live in a revved up world where vehicles live side-by-side with their human best friends. From lovable trucks to curious dune buggies to quick thinking fire trucks, the world of Rev and Rumble is always in motion with jobs to be done and fun to be had! Add Rev’s best friend, Avery, and her ATV, Alley, to the mix, and the laughs keep on coming!

The series was created by Scott and Julie Stewart, the minds behind Kate and Mim-Mim, who also serve as Executive Producers on the series, alongside Anne Loi, Kirsten Newlands and Ken Faier for DHX Media with Isaac Lin and Ray Wang for Alpha Group. The series is being animated by DHX Studios Vancouver.

DHX Brands, the dedicated brand management and consumer products arm of DHX Media, and Alpha Group will collaborate on global brand management. Alpha Group will be handling distribution for Rev & Roll in China, Asia, MENA and Russia, and DHX Media will be handling distribution in the rest of the world. Alpha will develop and distribute toys globally for the brand as the Master Toy Partner.
