Turner Broadcasting has ordered a new 26 x 11-minute live-action preschool series Ballooniverse from indie Brit producer 2 Sides TV for its UK Cartoonito channel.

The series, which is filmed on location at Halliford Studios in Shepperton and hosted by balloon artist and magician David Crofts (Mr. Balloonie), and newcomer Zoe Spurden, follows a group of children as they shape balloons into household objects and creations inspired by the world around them.

Some episodes are also shot at off-site locations including a farm and aquarium, and the series explores themes including dinosaurs, pirates, planes and gardening.

The deal marks 2 Sides’ first-ever venture with Turner Broadcasting and the series adds to Cartoonito’s growing library of kids programming, which includes Fireman Sam, Bananas in Pyjamas, Strawberry Shortcake, Baby Looney Tunes, and Jelly Jamm.
