EXECUTIVE PORTRAIT – Natasha Kline, Creator/Executive Producer of “PrimosÓ. (Disney/Craig Sjodin)
Disney Branded Television ordered Primos, an original animated comedy series on an extended multicultural Mexican-American family.
The story is based on executive producer Natasha Kline’s childhood experiences with her family. The series introduces Tater, an eccentric 10-year-old girl with big dreams and, unbeknownst to her, a certain “it factor” that makes her exceptional. When her 12 cousins (“primos” in Spanish) move in for the summer, they help her discover just what it is.
“Primos is set in childhood summers spent with my cousins under one roof, and the comedy that’s borne from what wonderfully hectic setting. As a kid, I didn’t see myself or my culture represented onscreen, so I’m excited to share my family dynamic through these new Disney characters and stories,” said Kline in a statement.
Kline directed animated episodes for Star vs. the Forces of Evil, Home: Adventures with Tip & Oh, and Big City Greens.

Primos will be produced by Disney Television Animation. Each episode will be a half-hour that is comprised of two 11-minute stories. Tater’s aspirations and larger-than-life imagination are seen via entries in her super-secret diary, which turn her deepest thoughts into grandiose animation sequences.
The release date has not been announced for Primos at this time.
