Jack McBrayer On Apple TV’s “Hello Jack! The Kindness Show,” OK Go, Future Projects & More

Earlier this year, it was announced that acclaimed series Hello, Jack! The Kindness Show would be returning to Apple TV+ for an all-new special and 4 original shorts, which debuted in June. Last month, the show’s second season was announced, as launching later this week on October 7th. The series was notably created by Emmy Award nominee Jack McBrayer (30 Rock, Phineas & Ferb, the Wreck-It Ralph franchise) and Daytime Emmy Award winner Angela C. Santomero (Blue’s Clues, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood), and is produced by Emmy Award-winning 9 Story Media Group (Karma’s World, Blue’s Clues & You!) and Jax Media, with animation by the Oscar-nominated studio Brown Bag Films.

Prior to finding success with Hello, Jack! The Kindness Show, McBrayer first made national waves as a sketch regular on Late Night With Conan O’Brien. The Second City alum became a star in portraying Kenneth Parcell on all 7 seasons of NBC’s 30 Rock. As if being a lead in one of the all-time great sit-coms was not enough, McBrayer has become an in-demand voice actor for animated films and television shows and appeared in dozens of films and television projects. He has found success in other media, starring in a West End theatrical production of Waitress in London, doing a voiceover for a major publisher’s audiobook, and making a cameo in a popular Mariah Carey music video.

On October 3, 2022, I had the pleasure of speaking with Jack McBrayer again via Zoom, as embedded below. Beyond Hello, Jack! The Kindness Show, we talked about the band OK Go participating within the series and other upcoming projects for McBrayer. More on McBrayer’s series is here, here and here.
