“Coming to PBS KIDS on Alaska Public Media July 15th!”
Molly of Denali is a NEW animated PBS KIDS series that follows the adventures of feisty and resourceful 10-year-old Molly Mabray, an Alaska Native girl who lives in the fictional village of Qyah, Alaska.
Molly helps her mom and dad run the Denali Trading Post – a general store, bunkhouse, and transport hub – where she assists tourists, trekkers, and scientists, and sometimes rides along in Mom’s bush plane or makes deliveries via dog sled!
Alaska Public Media and Molly of Denali
Powered by funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and producing station WGBH, Alaska Public Media is working to develop rural education material and video content to make the impact of Molly of Denali even bigger across the country!
Alaska Public Media, along with other producers across the state, were selected to create video interstitials featuring Alaskan kids! These nationally distributed live-action features will accompany Molly of Denali episodes and help explore common questions kids in the Lower 48 might have about Alaska!
Alaska Public Media was one of five public television stations nationwide selected to work together as part of an Education Working Group to develop Molly of Denali educational materials and resources. These materials will be developed using human-centered design methodology using the feedback from our partner community, Bethel. Final produced resources will be distributed nationally.
