Jennifer Garner and Her Real-Life Dog Martha to Star in Hit PBS KIDS® Series Martha Speaks
– New Episode Airs Monday, February 4, 2013 on PBS KIDS (check local listings)–
(Boston, MA, January 28, 2013) – The popular PBS KIDS series Martha Speaks continues its fourth season with a special episode featuring actress and super mom Jennifer Garner. Garner, mother to three young children with actor/director Ben Affleck, will be animated alongside her dog, whose name also happens to be Martha. Her appearance on Martha Speaks adds to her advocacy efforts on behalf of children’s literacy. Garner, whose mom was an English teacher, is an artist ambassador for Save the Children’s early education programs and has worked to promote legislation that ensures quality early education and literacy for children.
“Ms. Garner shares the same passion for reading and dogs we do,” says executive producer Carol Greenwald. ” We were thrilled to have her lend her talents to this episode.”
In “Too Many Marthas,” Martha is asked to sing at an animal rescue fundraiser and she’s thrilled. But on the day of the concert, Martha gets mixed up with another Martha – a dog belonging to a lady named Jennifer (Jennifer Garner). Can Martha help Jennifer locate her missing pup before it’s time to sing? Kids can tune-in and learn new words like number, aria, and a capella.
Also airing is the brand-new episode “Too Much Martha.” In this episode, Martha’s constant pursuit of snacks has added some extra pounds and the vet says she needs to lose some weight. The family resolves to help Martha control her portions and maintain a balanced diet, but when Martha learns what this means, she’s pretty fed up. No more late-night pizza?
Tune in for this brand-new Martha Speaks Monday, February 4, 2013 on PBS KIDS (check local listings).
