Channel Ten is home to some of the most socially regressive television in the country. A big hello to The Bolt Report, The Biggest Loserand MasterChef. But for once it’s on the cutting edge of promoting progressive social change with its cartoon SheZow.
SheZow follows the adventures of a 12-year-old boy, Guy Hamdon, who finds a magic ring that belonged to his dead Aunt Agnes. When he wears the ring he transforms into female superhero SheZow.
The show, which was funded by Film Victoria and Channel Ten, along with a Canadian backer, was picked up in June by US children’s network The Hub. And it’s causing quite a kerfuffle.
