UK broadcaster Five has greenlit two new projects for its Milkshake! block.
After announcing last week that is was dropping the Shake block and extending Milkshake, Five has picked up Angels of Jarm, a 40 x seven-minute animated series developed in-house with Impossible TV. The series targets three- to seven-year-olds and tells the story of three angels who help the children of Jarm solve perplexing problems. The first 20 eps are already in production and slated for a fall delivery; an additional 20 are scheduled to air in 2008.
The second series is a preschool documentary series with the working title Big School. Produced by Sixth Sense Film and Television, the 14 x 10-minute series captures the goings-on in a primary school classroom.
