A new Netflix show has been launched aiming to introduce children to the music of Motown. The animated adventure series has been made with Smokey Robinson advising as Executive Music Producer and features classic songs from the legendary 60’s soul label given a modern twist, aimed at pre-school children.


 Each episode of the series will draw inspiration from classics covered by contemporary artists, including hits made famous by the likes of Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, The Supremes and more. It tells the story of eight year old Ben and his friends Angie and Mickey, who discover that creativity and magic as they revive vibrancy to their fictional Motown city and learn life lessons along the way.

Show creator Josh Wakely says the soulful music is key to the show and he wants to make sure that kids are still talking about Motown music in 20 years’ time. ‘Motown Magic’ is available to stream on Netflix now.
