There are lots of shows for little kids. There is plenty of programming for older teens. But what about that group in the middle? Lately, most shows for this group have been of the silly sitcom variety (Nickelodeon and Disney dominate this market). That's great, but there's a need for weightier entertainment too. Good stories, real stakes, and compelling characters are sadly lacking in most young-teen shows. 'The Sticks' aims to change that.
