ROCK­ERS KISS team up with TV bosses for a new Hello Kitty chil­dren’s se­ries. The band be­gan their col­lab­o­ra­tion with the mak­ers of the fic­tional cat char­ac­ter in 2010 to launch a range, re­leas­ing toys, elec­tron­ics and other prod­ucts un­der the KISS x Hello Kitty range. Now the part­ner­ship moves to the small screen. Ex­ec­u­tives at US ca­ble net­work The Hub have op­tioned the rights to a new se­ries, which has the work­ing ti­tle of KISS Hello Kitty. Band co­founder Gene Sim­mons (pic­tured) is thrilled about the ven­ture. ‘‘The Hub Net­work is the per­fect home for the TV show, KISS Hello Kitty. We are in­cred­i­bly ex­cited about this op­por­tu­nity and want to make all our mil­lions of fans world­wide proud of a show they can watch with the whole fam­ily,’’ he says. Band­mate Paul Stan­ley added: ‘‘Know­ing and view­ing The Hub, as I do daily with my three chil­dren, it is the per­fect home for us to bring the KISS Hello Kitty jug­ger­naut to yet an­other gen­er­a­tion. I’m ex­cited to de­velop this project with The Hub as it en­sures it will have fam­ily ap­peal while keep­ing its brash and nur­tur­ing in­di­vid­u­a­tion.’’ The tele­vi­sion show, which Sim­mons is slated to ex­ec­u­tive pro­duce, will re­port­edly fea­ture four of the characters liv­ing their rock ’n’ roll dreams.
