Los Angeles, CA (June 5, 2020)
The Yippee TV platform has announced the debut of season 1 of Making Magic at Home with Justin Flom. On the series, Flom shares the secrets to some of his most popular tricks and illusions, instilling a sense of wonder and joy to viewers of all ages.
Justin Flom has a magical life. At a very young age, Flom began sharing the stage with his family, performing magic as a form of storytelling. Now, as an adult, Flom finds himself in front of as diverse an audience as any entertainer, including touring with Country superstars Florida Georgia Line and creating magic for other stars and companies such as Coca-Cola, Hobby Lobby, Lady Antebellum, Super Bowl coach Pete Carroll, and the entire Seattle Seahawks team, John Legend, Chrissy Teigen and Nick Jonas. His tours take him to buildings like Madison Square Garden to mega-churches to amphitheaters across the US. He truly has the ability to entertain anyone, anywhere.
However, creating magic for kids can be equally challenging. Flom, a father of two, was immediately drawn to the Yippee platform. He shares, “As a parent, I am keenly aware of how challenging it can be to find safe, positive programming for kids. As a performer, I know that kids can be some of the best, but toughest audiences. I wanted to create Making Magic at Home to help give both parents and kids positive, fun entertainment. But I also hope it instills in the next generation a love of magic and sense of wonder for what is possible in the world.”
The first season of Making Magic at Home includes 10 episodes, including lessons in how to eat a dollar bill, how to make a deck of cards disappear, and a fun illusion to inspire you to shoot for the moon.
Yippee TV continues to break the mold when creating family-friendly content. Believing that “Characters Build Character,” Yippee TV originals include content with strong, positive role models including Time2Dance, The Yippee Show, Pete and Penelope, and the only car show for kids, Backseat Drivers.
Launched in December 2019, Yippee is a streaming service and destination for families curated with safe, engaging entertainment for children aged 2-10. “At Yippee, there are no ads, algorithms, or attitudes,” says Brandon Piety, Head of Yippee. “We’re very excited to release Making Magic at Home, which breaks new ground with its innovative approach to entertaining and inspiring kids to find both a love of magic and a sense of wonder in the world, as one of our first Yippee originals.”
