Andrew W.K., Maker Studios Ask Young Viewers To ‘Meet Me At The Reck’

This fall, Andrew W.K., the "king of partying" and host of Cartoon Network’s Destroy Build Destroy, will go from rocker to “recker.” He’s partnered with Maker Studios to host the original series Meet Me at the Reck, a kid-focused educational program full of adventures and famous faces. “Hosting Meet Me at The Reck was so much fun for me,” said Andrew W.K. in a release. “The kids and characters I got to hang out with were all amazing people—we all got to run around and go crazy together and we were able to meet special guests who showed us how to make really cool projects.

Except now, W.K. isn’t just singing. He’s also hosting, Destroy Build Destroy, a live action series on Cartoon Network, tearing up twitter, producing Emmy nominated Dub albums, running night clubs, promoting Taco Bell and giving lectures at Harvard…and My Little Pony conventions, just to name a few of his various achievements. Earlier today I sat down with W.K.
