Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit educational organization behind Sesame Street, and Guru Studio, a leader in children’s entertainment, are teaming up on the Sesame Street spin-off, Mecha Builders (working title). The series features favorite Sesame Street characters as heroes in a robot-animation style, and will air in the US on HBO Max.

“We’re thrilled to be working on such timeless and beloved classic characters with the amazing team at Sesame Workshop,” said Frank Falcone, President and Executive Creative Director at Guru Studio.

“With Guru Studio’s masterful animated storytelling, we’re going beyond the Sesame Street neighborhood with a new take on our iconic brand,” said Kay Wilson Stallings, Head of Development and Production at Sesame Workshop.
