While the entertainment industry tends to place the majority of its focus on high-profile celebrities, the veterans of this industry deserve just as much credit. Appearing in dozens of projects in a wide variety of roles, Jack McBrayer is the prime example of an industry veteran. With over 100 acting credits to his name before the age of 50 that range from animated series to films on the silver screen, it’s clear that he has spent his career putting in the work necessary to become a star. Now his hard work is seemingly set to pay off big time: Apple has announced a new series set to hit Apple TV+ with McBrayer at the helm in Hello, Jack! The Kindness Show.
Even if you don’t know his name, you almost definitely recognize Jack McBrayer’s face. Whether it be for his role in the NBC comedy series 30 Rock to voice work to appearances on the late night talk show Conan, McBrayer has virtually done it all despite having spent less than a quarter of a century in the entertainment industry. That tireless work ethic has served him well however, now earning him his own show on Apple TV+ in Hello, Jack! The Kindness Show. Co-created by McBrayer himself and Angela C. Santomero, co-creator of the Nickelodeon series Blue’s Clues, the show will follow McBrayer as he teaches the youth about kindness in a fashion seemingly similar to the aforementioned Nickelodeon series. Alongside McBrayer, the series will also star Markita Prescott, Albert Kong, Paul Scheer and Sam Richardson, and is being produced by McBrayer, Wendy Harris, and Vince Commisso. Hello, Jack! The Kindness Show is expected to debut on Apple TV+ on November 5th.
For those who may be familiar with the character, it seems as though McBrayer is attempting to embody the spirit of his 30 Rock character Kenneth Parcell. A cheerful young man with an incredibly positive outlook, it would be of no surprise if he borrows some elements from his past work in this new project to inspire children and young adults. McBrayer is a prime example of hard work paying off, and you can see the fruits of his labor in Hello, Jack! The Kindness Show starting this November on Apple TV+.
