PBS Wisconsin is excited to welcome to its schedule the funny, engaging new PBS KIDS series, Lyla in the Loop.

Premiering 7 a.m. Monday, Feb. 5 on PBS Wisconsin, the new series for kids ages 4-8 follows Lyla, a dynamic 7-year-old girl, who lives in a big city with her close-knit family, fantastical blue sidekick Stu and a host of relatable and quirky characters in her community.

Together, they use creative and strategic problem-solving and critical thinking skills to address a range of everyday problems. The new series will debut in both English and Spanish.

In every adventure, Lyla and Stu introduce and explore foundational computational thinking concepts, leading to some comedic disasters and creative solutions, all while helping others in their community.

The series will support a wide range of learners, modeling flexible approaches to finding and designing solutions, and creative self-expression.

“Kids are natural creative problem-solvers, experimenting and investigating the world around them with joyful curiosity,” said series creator and showrunner Dave Peth. “Lyla in the Loop celebrates and encourages kids and the grownups in their lives to recognize those innate abilities and see them as a powerful tool to help others, express themselves, and solve all kinds of problems in everyday life.”
