Nashville, TN- Nashville’s quirkiest educational entertainment, Mizz KT and Friendz, an interactive, one-woman puppet show and non-profit performing arts studio Setting the Stage Studio are collaborating to make a children’s television show for families that will combine the zaniness of Pee Wee’s Playhouse, the educational values of Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood, and the young energy of The Mickey Mouse Club.  At the helm of this project is artistic director and Mizz KT herself, Catherine Holder.

“I hope that The Mizz KT and Friendz Show creates a fun place to learn and a safe place to create.  It’s so funny, but I finally realized what I’m trying to do.  I’m trying to re-create the educational entertainment of my youth.  I’m trying to make the Disney Channel of the early to mid 1990’s.  It was so wacky and fun, but at the same time had great values and taught some really great lessons,” says Holder.

The student portion of the show has already been written and shot through the Creator’s Studio, and had it’s premiere at the 2017 Winter Showcase at the Setting the Stage Studio, located at 1710 General George Patton Drive, Brentwood, TN 37027.  The student portion will consist of original pop music videos and SNL-style comedy sketches.  Holder is currently shooting the rest of the television show at the NECAT studios and at her studio in home.  The rest of the show will feature her original puppets: Maddie, the Puggle, Lucas, the Dachshund, and Danny, the Cat, and their adventures.
