Season two of the hit animated comedy-adventure series Big City Greens premieres Saturday, November 16 (9:30 a.m. EST/PST), on Disney Channel and in DisneyNOW. Created and executive produced by brothers Chris and Shane Houghton (Harvey Beaks), the series follows mischievous and optimistic 10-year-old Cricket Green who moves from the country to the big city with his wildly out of place family – older sister Tilly, father Bill and Gramma Alice.
Prior to the series’ season two debut, the Houghton brothers will participate in a Disney Television Animation showrunner panel at New York Comic Con on Saturday, Oct. 5 (4:15-5:15 pm EDT).
Guest stars for season two include NBA All-Star Karl-Anthony Towns, Alfred Molina, Thomas Middleditch, Jonathan Van Ness, Christopher Lloyd, Jameela Jamil, Lucy Lawless, Jim O’Heir, Ed Begley Jr., Cheri Oteri, Candace Kozak, Jason Maybaum and YouTube sensation SungWon Cho. The second season includes a holiday musical featuring seven original songs and a video game-themed episode with CG animation.
Today, Broken Karaoke, a new animated short-form series that spotlights favorite Disney Channel characters singing parodies of popular songs, launches on Disney Channel YouTube. The first short, Queen of Nice, features Tilly Green singing a parody of viral sensation Queen of Mean from the global hit Disney Channel Original Movie “Descendants 3.”
In addition, new Random Rings shorts, featuring Cricket and Tilly Green calling unsuspecting real-world people, continue to roll out every Sunday through Oct. 27 on Disney Channel and Disney Channel YouTube.
Big City Greens stars Chris Houghton as Cricket Green, Artemis Pebdani as sweet Gramma Alice, Marieve Herington as quirky older sister Tilly Green and Bob Joles as hard-working father Bill Green. The creative team includes Monica Ray and Natasha Kline as directors and Joachim Horsley as composer.
