WGBH Boston is producing the series, alongside creative producer Princess Daazhraii Johnson, who is Neets’aii Gwich’in and a resident of Fairbanks.

“I’m especially excited that Alaska Native children will get to see themselves in Molly, who’s such an inspiring role model for all kids. The project’s Alaska Native advisers worked hard to ensure that our children will get to see our beautiful cultures in a respectful light,” Johnson said.

Adeline Peter Raboff, Dewey Kk’ołeyo Hoffman, Luke Titus and Rochelle Adams are listed as an Alaska Native working group for the show; Adeline Peter Raboff, Lance X’unei Twitchell, Lorraine David and Marie Meade are language advisers. Nell Duke is an informational text adviser.
