In The Tradition of “After School Specials”, Movies From Brian Bird and Trevor Donovan In The Works

NOTE: This article is 6 months old and may not include the most recent information.

Actor Trevor Donovan who is heavily involved in an anti-bullying campaign has teamed up with producer Brian Bird and his production company to make a series of films which are being called “edutainment” in the tradition of the popular “After School Specials which aired on ABC beginning in 1972 and became a staple on television for 25 years. The projects will most likely deal with relevant issues and inclusion that young people deal with. Variety is reporting more details on the project and speculates that the movies may have already found a home at GAC Family where Trevor Donovan has signed a multi-picture deal with the television network which launched in September.

“These scripted narratives will be fun and humorous presentations of contemporary issues which inspire and uplift, just as they did in the original series,” says Donovan, who rose to fame on “90210,” playing the show’s only LGBTQI+ series regular character. “That model worked well back then, and after twenty years, the lessons and storytelling that entertained Gen-X should be enjoyed again.”
