Hello Kitty meets KISS! USA Today is reporting that Sanrio’s iconic kitty and heavy metal’s legendary makeup aficionados are teaming up for a children’s TV show. The working title is Kiss Hello Kitty; the show will follow four Hello Kitty characters living the rock star dream and creating pink anarchy in each scenario they’re put into. It will air on cable/satellite network, The Hub.
KISS bassist/frontman Gene Simmons serves as executive producer. “The Hub Network is the perfect home for the TV show, Kiss Hello Kitty,” said Gene. “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.” “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,” added guitarist/vocalist, Paul Stanley. “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.”
