“At the core of this series is a loveable and dysfunctional extended family, and through the Seed Baby app and exclusive online offerings, City is allowing viewers to grow their own extended Seed family week after week,” said Andrea Gagliardi, Senior Director and General Manager, Rogers Digital Media, Broadcasting. “Canadians are more connected now than ever before, and enhancing the viewing experience across multiple platforms allows fans of the show to be more than just viewers, but also participants.”
As the incubator for all things Seed, the official website, Citytv.com/Seed features the exclusive digital preview, cast bios, photos and full episodes post-broadcast, ensuring viewers never miss a moment of the Seed family fun.
Features on the Seed Baby app include:
· “Make a Baby” – partner up with either lead characters Harry or Rose to make a brand new Seed baby, then bring the “Seedling” to life with the magic of augmented reality as it dances, plays, and gets up to no good each week. Every new episode enables Harry Jr. or Rose Jr. with a different skill. Seed baby parents can track his or her progress, snap pics to share the fun with friends and family, and create a special family album.
· “Shots of Wisdom” – each week during the show, three new “shots” of wisdom are unlocked on this interactive viewing feature, providing fans with video tips on a variety of life events from Seed’s wise-cracking bartender Harry. After receiving tips from Harry, viewers can caption an image from the show to submit their own “shot” to be eligible to win one of three weekly prizes. Participants will also be entered into the draw for the grand prize – a trip for two to L.A. to have wings and beer with Harry.
