BBC Worldwide Channels and CBeebies’ in-house production team are adding a new children’s series to their development slate. The math-based series Numtum Adventures, aimed at upper preschoolers, will premiere on CBeebies in the UK later this year.

Co-developed by CBeebies and BBC Worldwide Channels, and animated by A Productions, Numtum Adventures evolved from a series of five-minute learning shorts that currently air on CBeebies in the UK and around the world.

BBC Worldwide will hold the commercial rights, including global channel broadcast, distribution and merchandising.

Numtums Adventures marks the latest in a slate of new investments for BBC Worldwide’s CBeebies network. Titles announced in recent months include Andy’s Wild Adventures, which combines footage from the BBC’s Natural History Unit with CGI technology, Mr Bloom’s Nursery, a combination of live action and puppetry to teach children about vegetables, and Baby Jake, which mixes of live action and 2D photographic animation.
