Yes! A variety of TV series can be created to address the needs of specific populations, and the child audience is certainly one that could benefit. The Entertainment-Education methodology has proven very successful for changing health behaviors, so I would like to see this sort of story-arc described your scripting. Characters in the TV series would model the behaviors that we would like to see the "real life" children emulate, such as eating less sugar and refined carbohydrates, getting more exercise, creative play, and watching less television :). All of the above lifestyle changes would help bolster the immune system, and help them resist chronic diseases like asthma.
Thank you Mr. Lever, and YES! absolutely, interactivity could enable viewers to become participants. I don't know if the East Los High management team has considered a multi-platform approach (how about a Wii program that teaches the dance routines) but likely they have things underway or in place. The field is definitely growing in that direction.
