A comedy-mystery series for children about a barber and his granddaughter who solve mysteries in town and find clues using a magical pair of scissors that projects the memories of a person with one snip of their hair. The deeper goal is to explore how the “old school” grandfather can become a more open person through his newfound relationship with his teenage granddaughter.
It is strongly character driven in regards to the protagonists, i.e, Sanga, the barbershop owner and his granddaughter. It will also focus on the relationships between the secondary characters working in the store. This series is meant to showcase the fact that characters as diverse as these can be seen in a genuinely funny show where the audience can connect with the characters at a deeper level. The show doesn’t focus on the fact that the characters are South Asian, rather it’s a story about a grandfather and granddaughter which happens to feature characters of color. Placing characters in a modern setting with a fun plot and sense of humor is not something I’ve seen in a South Indian animated program. In the past, animated shows in this spectrum have always been related to our mythology rather than our current experiences. This is my opportunity to build a better show in a diverse backdrop. Especially a show where the humor is thought out and relevant rather than plain slapstick.
I was responsible for not only ideating and writing the series concept from scratch but also designing the visual aesthetic. I developed a concept trailer for it which gives the audience's attention the context for the series and to expose them to the characters and themes that this series could portray.
