UK-based indie production house Kindle Entertainment has been commissioned to make a third season of the CBeebies preschool show Big and Small.
Co-produced with Belfast, Ireland-based Sixteen South, whose other productions include CBeebies’ shows Sesame Tree and Big City Park, the 26 new episodes will be filmed in Northern Ireland later this year.
Big and Small is backed by a licensing program that features licensees such as HarperCollins, Paper Projects, C & M Licensing and Little Star Creations. The commission is timed with a growing Big and Small online presence. The show now has fan followings on major social networks and has inspired an iPhone app.
