“A creator and true optimist, Nancy is a relatable, imperfect character who exemplifies the problem-solving power of imagination through the comical situations she gets herself into,” said Kanter in a statement. “We look forward to the series’ premiere and sharing even more heartfelt stories that showcase Nancy’s creative endeavours and her unwavering belief that she can accomplish her grand ideas while encouraging those around her to do the same.”
