In Uncategorized on June 12, 2015 at 6:00 am

Boom! We did it. The First Season of Ty the Pie Guy is officially wrapped!

Ty Gets Pied!

We’re pretty excited: 20 episodes, over 100 minutes of content, 530 subscribers, 130,000+ views! And we’re still going places…

We got to go to the Festival! And dance before the Prince!

Well, okay, maybe there weren’t any princes, but Ty Freedman (Ty the Pie Guy) and Associate Producer Sarah Winshall walked the red carpet at the inaugural San Francisco Web Festival! Three Pie Guy episodes screened in 120-seat theatre including Breakfast Pizza! and The Inseparable Egg! What a treat to see them on the big screen!

Screen Shot 2015-06-10 at 4.57.56 PMTy the Pie Guy was one of only 4 family shows honored at the festival and we met some amazing fellow creators, filmmakers and distributors through the festival.

Meanwhile, we’ve already started planning for Season 2! So spread the word, cross your fingers and make sure you’re subscribed to Ty the Pie Guy for some fun, bonus videos this summer! Check out our website for additional great easy recipes and lots of pie!

We had so much fun this season working with the awesome talented and adorable kids featured on the show. All our kids – some actors, some not – are pretty special! Here are a few to keep your eye on this year:


Charlize diaz de Leon – who plays Ty’s little sister Rose – is whip smart, super funny and a charming soul. She loves pop culture, and is particularly obsessed with Once Upon A Time, which we liked to tease her about relentlessly on set. She has been with us the entire season and we can’t wait to see where Rose will pop in from come Season 2. She got a guest stint on the New Girl season finale which made us all cheer out loud! Dash Williams, (Kids React) who starred in our pilot episode Breakfast Pizza!, also starred in multiple episodes of Fresh Off The Boat this season! And be sure to check out Liv Horinouchi in Popcorn! and Bleau Essen in Vegans. These are just a few of the super cool kids who have made Ty the Pie Guy so much fun! Kids Rock!

For the big Pie Contest season finale, we brought back these kids and many more from the entire season. It was so much fun! I love creating healthy entertainment with Ty the Pie Guy, literally and figuratively.

Look for Ty the Pie Guy at VidCon this year. And follow Ty the Pie Guy on Twitter and Facebook for all the latest news!

Have a great summer and keep creating!

awards_academynom_annieupdateWe are so excited for, and proud of, our friends at Dreamworks Animation for the amazing success of HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2. Over $618 million in worldwide boxoffice and it continues to gain much deserved critical acclaim with multiple nominations and several awards under it’s high-flying belt: The Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature Film and 6 Annie Awards, including Best Animated Feature Film and Best Director for Dean DeBlois. It has been nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film. Fingers crossed for a win next Sunday, February 22! It would be a great nod to the film, the franchise (cause really, no offense to Toy Story 3, but How To Train Your Dragon should have taken the 2010 Oscar) and to the studio that has broken so much ground with their edgy and inspiring filmmaking and animation.

Check out the fun Dragons site http://dreamworksdragons.com for a deep dive into this spectacular world, which highlights not only the amazing movies, but also the TV show, the games, the products and all the characters. It’s all the dragons you’ll ever need in one place. This TVGla and Dreamworks franchise site was a 2014 W³ Awards Best in Show Winner!

tythepieguybcardwithouturlWe’ve been hard at work and play cooking up the fun and fantastic TY THE PIE GUY, a new, story-driven comedy cooking show for kids and families. It’s perfect for ages 4-8 and their parents, though we think everyone will enjoy watching Ty’s antics and learning a little bit more about their kitchen.

TyPieGuy_Ty_juggling134 West is proud to produce and present this charming and educational show which we hope will inspire families to cook together. Ty The Pie Guy is created by the hilarious and adorable Ty Freedman, who played Charlie in the LA production of 134 West’s BEND IN THE ROAD: The Anne of Green Gables Musical.  He writes and stars in this unique, story-driven show which combines comedy and cooking tips to help kids and their parents get excited to get in their kitchen and explore new foods and recipes.
