The Jim Henson Company’s third party licensing label, HIP (Henson Independent Properties), is now the exclusive worldwide distributor for Sixteen South Television’s new preschool series, Driftwood Bay.
Season one of the mixed media animated series (52 x seven-minute episodes) is currently in production with delivery slated for spring 2014. Driftwood Bay follows the adventures of five-year-old Lily, who lives in a beach hut with her Dad on an island. The series is inspired by the artwork of Joanne Carmichael, a mixed media artist whose work comprises items salvaged from the beach near her home on Scotland’s Isle of Arran.
Sixteen South and Henson have worked together in the past on the production of preschool puppet series Pajanimals.
