“Max & Wrigley™” is based on the award-winning children’s book series “Read With Max™.” “Max & Wrigley™” will focus on social as well as emotional issues. The focus of the productions will be early childhood education for children ages four to eight. All content will be family-friendly and will involve national educational standards with an emphasis on lessons in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). "Max and Wrigley™" has been registered as a Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) signatory production to allow for credited talent and help with national distribution.
“Chloe”, a female standard poodle, is a famous diva-ish singer. Before her fame, she was a schoolteacher, and now she often visits the students at the local school. Although she doesn’t show too much interest, she is well aware that Max has a crush on her. Chloe also is the lead singer of “The Biscuit Band™”. Chloe sings lead for some of the original songs that are associated with the social and emotional issues that are addressed during each episode.

“I am thrilled to be the voice of Chloe in the "Max & Wrigley" series! There is such a great team and talent behind this series I can't wait to see it take off. When I first read the lines for Chloe I was immediately hooked by the witty humor and playfulness of the writing. Chloe's character is vibrant, sassy, and I had so much fun doing her voiceovers,”
