“Big City Greens” follows the offbeat adventures of 10-year-old Cricket Green, whose natural curiosity and enthusiasm lead him and his family – older sister Tilly, father Bill and Gramma Alice – on epic journeys and into the hearts of his new neighbors.
The Houghton brothers (Chris & Shane) who created the show serve as executive producers. Chris Houghton is also the voice of Cricket Green. Drawing upon their personal experiences, Chris and Shane had the vision to create a series that delivers 2-part funny and 1-heart leaves us all with something we can relate too. I love shows that give a little food for thought! The Houghton Brothers worked for two years on developing the first 11 minutes of content before getting the approval to move forward with the show they’ve already completed the 20th half hour show.
