"Astounding Adventures” the animated series was created to inspire, educate, and encourage people of ALL walks of life with tales of moral, steadfast heroics in a a world that continues to glorify moral failings and adds more ice to the slippery slopes our children face daily. It will satisfy the generations-old desire to see people of African descent as heroes, as positive figures in the world and able to affect the change they want to see in their community and across the planet.
Unlike traditional episodes, Astounding Adventures Season Zero is a compilation that will consist of roughly four 2.25 minute shorts with the fifth episode rounding off to roughly 2 minutes. The first four will be composed of self-contained storylines featuring each of the heroes headlining the series, with the fifth showcasing all four together in a joint adventure. The common thread between each episode will be the acquisition of an African artifact that will play a larger role in the core eleven-minute five-part pilot. This would be followed by Season One which would consist of six 11 minute episodes. Each eleven-minute episode at its conclusion will be followed by a “Heroes You Should Know!” segment. The segment will feature a true to life hero with the lead character of the aforementioned episode introducing him or her. The list of those scheduled to appear during Season Zero and Season One are Frances Cress Welsing, John Henrik Clarke, Dr. Amos N. Wilson, Steve Cokely, Dr. Yosef Ben-Jochannan, Ann Lowe, and inventor Alice H Parker. Season Zero and Season One estimated the budget to be produced is $2.1 million dollars.
