New TV series delivers immersive experience for kids, and the entire family,
to learn about their Catholic faith

TAMPA, Fla. — It’s no secret that the culture today is vying for the attention of families and their kids in a variety of ways, many of which are harmful, unwholesome and unbecoming for Christians hoping for truthful entertainment that aligns with their faith. Studio 3:16 is an episodic TV series for kids developed by Cross Boss Media, with a focus on high-quality entertainment that gives parents the peace of mind to know their kids will be learning the truth, beauty and goodness of the faith through doctrinally sound programming. The series launches today on the feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, September 8, 2021, with 18 episodes scheduled for the first season.

“Our programming sparks the interest of modern kids by speaking the truth in creative, entertaining ways while being unmistakingly faith-based and wholesome,” said Rob Reynolds, founder and president of Cross Boss Media and executive producer of “Studio 3:16.” “By combining original music with comedy, we deliver a fresh alternative to the programs filled with violence and sex, which currently permeate the air. “‘Studio 3:16’ enriches the lives of families while engaging and leading young people on a journey to discover Christ and understand the Bible.”

Content is directed towards kids ages 7-12 years old, and a new episode will be made available each week on the Studio 3:16 website. Eighteen episodes have already been produced, with another 54 episodes planned for production and release over the next 18 months.

Every episode of Studio 3:16 is written and produced by screenwriters with years of experience in Hollywood, with the help of Catholic theologians and detailed input from kids ages 12 to 18 years old. No corners were cut when creating content for “Studio 3:16.”

“Our insightful Christian messages boldly cut through the noise of today’s culture loud and proud in clever, comedic, and entertaining ways,” said Reynolds. “Our cast and characters unfailingly deliver an ethical and moral perspective on spiritual messaging that is always entertaining, memorable and, most importantly, shareable.”
