Canada and UK teaming up for new pre-school series

Canada and the UK are teaming up to produce a new Bookaboo pre-school series for CBC in Canada and ITV in the UK.

Canadian indie producer Cite Amerique will work with British partner Happy Films on the series, which will run for 28 11-minute episodes.

The series will combine puppetry, live action and CGI animation.

“The series has been both an audience-winning and critically acclaimed show in the UK and we’re confident it will be just as big of a hit across the pond. This is the first stop on what we hope will be a world tour for Bookaboo and his crew,” Alyssa Sapire, vp of programming kids and family entertainment at FremantleMedia Enterprises, said Monday in a statement.
