LOS ANGELES – Emphasizing the importance of developing financial literacy among youth, The Hub TV Network, one of the fastest growing basic cable networks, will premiere a new edition of the animated series “Secret Millionaires Club” Sunday, December 16 (9 a.m. ET). The series is created in partnership with and voiced by famed investor Warren Buffett.
After premiering with an episode featuring entertainment mogul and business entrepreneur Jay-Z, the series continues to attract a roster of notable guest stars, with upcoming episodes including Bill Gates, Shaquille O’Neal, Nick Cannon, Gisele Bündchen and Kelly Rowland.
The half-hour animated series features a group of entrepreneurial kids who learn the basic principles of business through a series of adventures involving an animated Buffett. “Secret Millionaires Club” teaches kids the value of money through education and giving back to their local community -- two lessons timely for the holiday season.
In the December 16 episode, “The Cost of Giving,” the Secret Millionaires Club helps a local restaurant owner increase customer awareness of his business, while Lisa faces a potential burnout before learning an important lesson on life-balance.
The series is produced by A Squared Entertainment and Andy Heyward, former CEO of DIC Entertainment.
