The N Rolls Out Degrassi Specials
NEW YORK, February 27: The N will premiere two new specials for its teen Degrassi franchise: Degrassi in Kenya and Degrassi Spring Break.
The half-hour documentary Degrassi in Kenya features the seven cast members on a personal trip to Kenya to build a childrens school house for a local impoverished community. The actors speak candidly about the issues African children face and what people can do to make a difference. Degrassi in Kenya will premiere on The N on March 14 at 8 p.m.
Following on April 4, The N will debut Degrassi Spring Break at 8 p.m. In the hour-long movie, the teen cast takes to the road for a fun-filled adventure with plenty of break ups, make ups and mayhem.
The series is currently in its seventh season on The N, with original episodes rolling out every Friday at 8 p.m. Degrassi: The Next Generation, produced by Epitome Pictures in association with CTV, was recently nominated for its second GLAAD Award in the category of Outstanding Drama Series.
“We are so proud of our Degrassi talent who shed light on the importance and lack of education in Africa while bringing sensitive subject matter, tolerance and laughter to thousands of fans around the country,” said Sarah Tomassi Lindman, the senior VP and general manager for The N.
