March 27 (UPI) —Kristen Bell will host a Nickelodeon special about coronavirus created for kids and their families.The network announced in a press release Friday that Bell, 39, will host “#KidsTogether: The Nickelodeon Town Hall,” a #KidsTogether town hall on COVID-19, airing Monday at 7 p.m. ET.
“You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers. Join Kristen Bell & special guests for the ‘#KidsTogether Town Hall’ on all things Coronavirus this Monday at 7p/6c,” Nickelodeon wrote on Instagram.
The special will give a “kids-eye view” of life amid the coronavirus outbreak and address young people’s concerns about the health crisis. The show fill feature appearances by Josh Gad, Kel Mitchell, Kenan Thompson, Ciara and Russell Wilson and other stars, and a performance from Alicia Keys.
In addition, Dr. Nadine Burke Harris, California’s surgeon general, and Dr. Vivek H. Murthy, former U.S. surgeon general, will share advice on how to stay healthy, while kids and their parents from around the country will discuss how they’re coping with the outbreak.
“It’s so important to remember that we are all in this together, and our kids and loved ones need outlets to help them process and understand what’s going on and, most importantly, to still feel connected,” Bell said. “I hope kids and families come away from this special feeling a little more comfortable and that they enjoy some much-needed moments of humor during this difficult time.”
Nickelodeon launched #KidsTogether, a new initiative encouraging kids and their families to stay informed, engaged and healthy amid the outbreak, last week.
Bell voices Anna in the Disney movie “Frozen” and its sequel, “Frozen 2.” “Frozen 2” was made available to stream three months early on Disney+ this month.
