The SportsScopes ™ franchise delivers topical branded entertainment to fans of various professional sports leagues, providing horoscopes to create a funny and provocative take on predictions of who will win or lose. “Sometimes she picks them and sometimes she doesn’t, but it’s all in good fun,” said series producer Peter Kjenaas.

The series features voice-acting superstar Kath Soucie (The Replacements, Pirates of the Caribbean: World’s End, Curious George, Futurama, Kim Possible) as Haley, and is executive produced by Nancy Cartwright. “We’ve streamlined our production line until we can deliver these fully animated shorts in just a couple days,” said Cartwright. “Look for lots more of Haley and friends appearing across the sports world and beyond.”
