PRODUCED BY THE SPRINGHILL COMPANY, THE SPECIAL BRINGS TOGETHER IDINA MENZEL, ILANA GLAZER, MOSHE KASHER, SKYLAR ASTIN, HANNAH EINBINDER, TOMMY DORFMAN, JOSH PECK, HARI NEF, MICHAEL ZEGEN, BRYAN GREENBERG, JORDAN FIRSTMAN AND MORE TO CELEBRATE JEWISH CULTURE AND CUISINE

Los Angeles, CA, April 12, 2022 – YouTube and The SpringHill Company, LeBron James and Maverick Carter’s media conglomerate, today announced an all new installment of the groundbreaking “Recipe for Change”, an original series where celebrities, chefs, activists and creators gather around the dinner table for necessary conversations. This special, “Recipe for Change: Standing Up to Antisemitism,” celebrates the culture, traditions, identities and experiences of Jewish people and premieres on Thursday, April 14 on Jason Y. Lee’s Jubilee YouTube Channel.

In “Recipe for Change: Standing Up to Antisemitism” hosts Ilana Glazer, Moshe Kasher and Idina Menzel partner with esteemed chefs Nancy Silverton and Einat Admony, and culinary historian Michael Twitty to host dinner guests including Skylar Astin, Michael Ian Black, Rachel Bloom, Rabbi Sharon Brous, Tommy Dorfman, Alex Edelman, Hannah Einbinder, Jordan Firstman, Lori Gottlieb, Bryan Greenberg, ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt, Hari Nef, Josh Peck, Zac Posen, Ruth Reichl, Rachel Sumekh, and Michael Zegen.

The special celebrates the breadth of the Jewish experience, including food and culture, and discusses the recent and historic acts of hate and violence against the Jewish community, featuring conversations about how we can raise awareness and build allyship around Antisemitism. The most interesting and provocative conversations emerge around the dinner table as those from the Jewish community prove that when oppressed groups band together, the minority becomes a powerful majority and tiny ripples of action can create tidal waves of change.

This new installment will be the second in the series. The first “Recipe for Change: Stop Asian Hate,” which was also produced by The SpringHill Company and premiered in June 2021, was YouTube’s response to the reprehensible acts of violence against the Asian and Pacific Islander (API) community last year. The premiere special was a beautiful celebration of Asian culture, tradition, storytelling and allyship led by prolific leaders in the API community including Simu Liu, Michelle Kwan, Hasan Minhaj, Olivia Munn, Jay Shetty, Lisa Ling, Tina Tchen, BD Wong, Amanda Nguyen, Ross Butler and more.

LeBron James and Maverick Carter will continue to serve as executive producers on “Recipe for Change” with their media conglomerate The SpringHill Company. Showrunner Joel Relampagos will also executive produce alongside Jamal Henderson and Philip Byron of The SpringHill Company. Co-executive producers include Camille Maratchi and Courtney Whitaker also of The SpringHill Company with talent booking provided by Cultivated Entertainment led by Jen Proctor and Danny Zaccagnino and Ali Schwartz overseeing casting for YouTube Originals.

SPECIAL FEATURES KILLER MIKE, FORMER MAYORS OF ATLANTA ANDREW YOUNG AND KASIM REED, ATLANTA DREAM VICE PRESIDENT RENEE MONTGOMERY AND MORE

WHAT:

Today YouTube Originals unveiled the official trailer for “Home Courts” with Quavo — an all-new special featuring the MIGOS rapper and basketball lover exploring the city of Atlanta through the lens of famous local basketball courts. With the help of local athletes and public figures who call the city home, including artist Killer Mike, Atlanta Dream Co-Owner and Vice President Renee Montgomery, former Mayors of Atlanta Andrew Young and Kasim Reed, and former NFL star Walter Stith, viewers will learn about the role basketball courts play for local communities at large, important historical locations centered around the city, as well as the little-known stories of the players who left the small swath of asphalt to go pro. “Home Courts” with Quavo premieres for free on Thursday, December 16 exclusively on MIGOS’ YouTube Channel.

In the trailer, viewers are taken on a journey with Quavo to basketball hotspots big and small, from playgrounds to stadiums. “What’s happening there is more than a game. Sure, people are playing ball, but they’re also chasing dreams for themselves, their families and their communities,” said Quavo. The native rapper goes on to uncover that home courts are the places that shed light on what’s really going on in the city. He continues, “you will find out what makes people angry, what’s giving them hope and what needs to change.”

“Home Courts with Quavo” is based on a Quavo original idea and produced by Critical Content, with Tom Forman, Jenny Daly, Quavo and Brian Sher serving as executive producers.

The documentary comes shortly after the release of “Ice Cold,” a four-episode docu-series from executive producers MIGOS that touches on another thought-provoking subject pertinent to the rap trio. The series uses the prism of hip-hop jewelry to explore deeper issues around racial inequity and the American Dream.

YOUTUBE ORIGINALS KIDS & FAMILY PARTNERS WITH MOONBUG ON NEW ANIMATED SERIES “SUPA STRIKAS: ROOKIE SEASON” IN COLLABORATION WITH UNICEF: PREMIERING DECEMBER 3 ON THE OFFICIAL SUPA STRIKAS YOUTUBE CHANNEL

LOS ANGELES, CA, November 23, 2021 — YouTube Originals today announced its collaboration with Moonbug Entertainment in partnership with UNICEF for the premiere of “Supa Strikas: Rookie Season” out of the UK, along with the release of the official trailer. “Supa Strikas: Rookie Season” is the prequel to the global, hit soccer animated series, “Supa Strikas.” “Supa Strikas: Rookie Season,” consists of 12 episodes with the first six launching December 3 on the official THE SUPA STRIKAS YOUTUBE CHANNEL and the YouTube Kids app. The six remaining episodes will roll out in early 2022 and will also be available then in Brazilian Portuguese, Spanish, German and Russian catering to the brand’s global audience.

“Supa Strikas: Rookie Season” is the original story of star striker, Shakes, and how he made it to the world’s greatest soccer team, the Supa Strikas! This prequel series that has its roots with a comic book classic launched in South Africa in 2001, uncovers some earth-shattering revelations for fans including the mystery of Shakes’ missing father and how his biggest on-field nemesis was once his best friend.

“Who better to partner with on this project than kids production powerhouse Moonbug and the world-renowned children’s organization UNICEF – both align with our shared values of putting kids and their well-being first,” said Nadine Zylstra, Head of Family, Learning and Impact for YouTube Originals. “We are looking forward to delivering this inspirational prequel to the popular ‘Supa Strikas’ series to the global fans that have been waiting for it.”

“UNICEF is excited to work in collaboration with this much-loved children’s series, which creatively originated in Southern Africa and has then travelled the world,” said UNICEF Regional Director for Eastern and Southern Africa, Mohamed M. Fall. “As we mark UNICEF’s 75th anniversary next month, the partnership around ‘Supa Strikas’ is another timely opportunity to engage with children and their parents on positive messaging in helping to re-imagine a world with more fairness, equal opportunities, respect for diversity and team spirit.”

“YouTube is a key partner for us at Moonbug. 100s of millions of kids watch our shows on the YouTube platform every single day. And UNICEF, of course as a force for good in millions of kids’ lives globally,” said Andy Yeatman, Head of Americas at Moonbug. “We are thrilled to be partnering with both to bring our audience one step closer to the ‘Supa Strikas’ origin-story.”

Rookie Season is the kick-off of a closer collaboration between UNICEF and Moonbug Entertainment to develop storylines aligned to the well-being of children as well as fairness, diversity and healthier living, in an entertaining and engaging show that aims to teach school age kids (ages 6-12) about the importance of perseverance and following your dreams.

With December 11 marking the 75th anniversary of UNICEF and over seven decades of working for the rights and well-being of all children – the most vulnerable especially – the series pays tribute to the collective accomplishments and continued push around the rights of children by placing the UNICEF logo on the Supa Strikas match day kit.

“Supa Strikas: Rookie Season” is produced by Moonbug Entertainment. Susanne Daniels is Global Head of Original Content for YouTube. Nadine Zylstra serves as Head of Family, Learning and Impact for YouTube Originals.
