'Motown Magic' takes us on the various adventures that Ben and his magical pen go on, where troubles are aplenty, but everything always ends on a brighter, happier note
One of Netflix's best productions for its younger audience, 'Motown Magic' is a musical, magical show that premiered on 20 November 2018, and has since been praised for the consistently realistic portrayal of an African American family, and for recreating Motown songs for a new generation. The show narrates the story of eight-year-old Ben, a wide-eyed, big-hearted boy with exceptional imagination who with the help of his magic paintbrush MasterPiece brightens up his neighborhood.
The show manages to incorporate engaging storylines that would appeal to children, with music from some of our favorite Motown musicians, including The Jackson 5, Michael Jackson, The Temptations, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, The Supremes, and Smokey Robinson.
Season two of 'Motown Magic' will premiere on Friday, June 28.
'Motown Magic' is the story of a talented, yet under-confident boy who gets chosen as the "artist" while trying to find out what his special talent is. He has a loving and hardworking family that tries to convince him every day that he is special, along with a best friend who believes in him unconditionally.
The show takes us on the various adventures that Ben and his magical pen go on, where troubles are aplenty, but everything always ends on a brighter, happier note. To top it off, the stories are made more beautiful with the help of some of our favorite Motown classics.
The show stars actress Avia Fields as Ben, while Kelly Jean Badgley portrays her best friend Stephanie.
The show was created by Australian director, screenwriter, and producer Josh Wakely, who has the rights to three major music publishing catalogs — The Beatles, Motown, and Bob Dylan. For 'Motown Magic', he secured the rights to the Jobete and Stone Diamond catalogs which have hundreds of Motown's greatest hits.
He also created the Emmy-winning 'Beat Bugs' for Netflix on August 3, 2016.
