BBC Worldwide has been named the magazine publisher for HIT Entertainment’s new preschool series, Mike the Knight, which is set to premiere on CBeebies this fall.

The CGI-animated series will first be featured in BBC Worldwide’s CBeebies magazine in November, while a standalone Mike the Knight magazine will be published in September 2012.

Mike the Knight’s fantasy world of knights, dragons and magic will be the pillars for the new magazine. Co-produced with Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana Studio, the series follows a 10-year-old boy who is the son of the King and Queen of Glendragon. In his quest to become a noble knight, Mike is joined by a host of characters including his trusty steed Galahad, two eccentric dragons, Squirt and Sparkie, and his sister Evie, a trainee wizard.

BBC Worldwide has published the successful Bob the Builder magazine for HIT Entertainment for more than 11 years.
