From China to Brazil, from Iceland to the Himalayas: Discovery Familia invites young viewers to join an adventure that celebrates the spirit of exploration and inspires a yearning to discover the world. Led by Doki, the network’s wildly popular host, and his friends, the new series DOKI will air Monday through Friday at 5:30PM E/ 2:30PM P, starting November 11.
For Doki, Fico, Oto, Anabella, Mundi and Gabi, any day can be the start of an exciting expedition. To find the answers to questions about subjects such as science, nature, art and music, the six friends climb aboard their plane and set out on fun adventures that lead them to new lands, peoples and cultures. Whether it’s finding out where silk comes from, how gravity works, what a time zone is or whether there is light at the bottom of the ocean, nothing can stop these intrepid explorers as they travel to the depths of the sea, the summit of Everest or beyond the Earth itself to the International Space Station in search of knowledge.
“The decision to give Doki and his friends their own series is the best indication of the character’s success in reaching our audience,” said Bilai Joa Silar, Vice President of Content, Discovery Familia. “Like all of our programming, the DOKI series has been created to prep children for the world around them by sparking curiosity and encouraging independent thinking, while preserving the Spanish language from a young age.”
The series reflects preschoolers’ natural tendency toward curiosity and motivates them to use their imagination. It teaches basic concepts in such subjects as biology, astronomy, geography, art and music while inspiring children to ask questions about their daily lives, solve problems and not let obstacles discourage them from their goals.
And to make the experience even more complete, Discovery Familia has created the microsite www.dokilaserie.com, with information about the series’ characters, games and videos.
About Doki and his friends:
Doki is charismatic and curious, constantly asking why and not settling for “because I said so!” as an answer. He knows a little bit about a lot of things, and anything he doesn’t know about he wants to learn. His specialty is research and investigation.
Oto is an avid reader with a good heart. He knows a lot about geography and the Earth, making him the perfect pilot.
Gabi is full of energy, athletic and brave. She is fascinated by animals, especially bugs and worms.
Fico is the unpredictable one of the group. His friends never know what to expect when he is around. Fico’s passions are sports, games and music.
Mundi is a quick thinker and is especially good at science and technology. She is an expert at using the computer and can be counted on to collect information for the group’s next adventure.
Anabella is sweet, creative and enthusiastic. When she visits other countries, she loves to learn about local art, architecture and traditional clothing, using them as inspiration for her own creations.
