Disney Branded Television has announced the premiere date for “Kiff,” a new animated buddy-comedy series starring Kimiko Glenn in the titular role. 
Glenn, best known for her role as Brook Soso in Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black,” will voice Kiff, an optimistic squirrel. The upcoming series follows Kiff and her bunny best friend Barry, voiced by H Michael Croner, as they navigate school, relationships and their strange community in Table Town, a world where animals and magical eccentricities coexist. 
Created and executive-produced by Lucy Heavens and Nic Smal, the series is inspired by the creators’ experiences growing up in Cape Town, South Africa. Each half-hour episode will feature two stories and a new original song.
The show’s theme song also recently dropped alongside the announcement of its premiere date.
As episodes include new songs, a “Kiff Original Soundtrack” from Walt Disney Records will be released, as well as a stand-alone vertical-scrolling adventure game that will be available on the DisneyNOW app and website.
Some notable Asian American actors round out the “Kiff” cast as recurring characters: “Steven Universe” alum Deedee Magno Hall voices Kiff’s teacher, Miss Deer Teacher; “Loki” star Eugene Cordero pulls double duty as Kiff’s neighbor, The Pone, and the school secretary, Secretary Prince; “Looney Tunes” actor Eric Bauza voices both TV producer Roy Fox and Kiff’s classmate Reggie; and “Superstore” star Nichole Sakura will voice Barry’s sister, Terri Buns.     
“Kiff” will premiere on Mar. 10 on Disney Channel at 8:00 p.m. EST/PST and on Mar. 15 on Disney Plus.
