Britain’s Channel Five has picked up brand-new preschool series Bradley and Bee from Edinburgh, Scotland-based Red Kite Animation for its Milkshake! preschool block.
The 52 x 11-minute CG-animated series is based on The Adventures of Bradley and Friends from Hungry Boy Productions’ Scott Downie and will make its Milkshake! debut in 2015.
Red Kite developed the series with animation software developer Digimania on-board as co-producer.
Bradley and Bee follows the adventures of seven-year-old Bradley and his five-year-old sister, Bee, who own a magical pop-up book that, when opened, can transport the pair to exotic geographical locations via Bradley’s toy model plane, Victor.
The series celebrates cultural diversity and focuses on problem-solving as the siblings must, for example, figure out ways to herd bison, save snakes and help hippos with bad cases of hiccups.
