The Pneumatic Watermelon Squisher, a robotic high-fiver and a coffee drone are just some of the clever and wacky inventions coming to Family Channel this March in the new series Bajillionaires. Debuting as a two-day television event on Saturday, March 2 and Sunday, March 3 at 10 a.m. ET/PT, the live-action comedy follows a group of neighbourhood pals as they try to invent an amazing product, change the world and maybe even make a bajillion dollars in the process! The premiere weekend kicks off Family Channel’s massive March schedule, an incredible lineup complete with returning fan-favourites, must-see movies and brand new shows. Fans who can’t wait to get inventive can check out the Bajillionaires YouTube channel for exclusive video content including fun experiments with the cast, and stream the first episode on the Family Channel App beginning March 1.
Twelve-year-old Max Graham is President and CEO of a tiny start-up company that he runs with his friends out of his parents’ garage. The gang is constantly brainstorming ideas for new inventions, and while most of their ideas are hilariously bad, totally weird and completely impossible, they’re always learning something new, becoming better friends and getting one step closer to their BIG idea. In the premiere episode, the gang build a delivery drone, vibrating headband and super juicer to try to qualify for InventiveCon – an invention convention with a big cash prize. Following the premiere weekend, new episodes of Bajillionaires will air Sundays at 10 a.m. ET/PT and will be offered on the Family Channel App and Family OnDemand.
Bajillionaires stars Ricky Ortiz as Max Graham; Arista Arhin as Alicia Windsor; Mya Singh as Kaylyn French; Alec Dahmer as Noodles; Jadian Toros as Zeke; Adrianna Di Liello as Max’s older sister, Chelsea; Sandy Jobin-Bevans as Max’s dad, Bryan; and Allison Price as Max’s mom, Helen.
