UK-based Komixx Media Group has added Finland’s YLE as a broadcaster for its upcoming animated series Dog Loves Books.
Dog Loves Books, based on the award-winning books by author/illustrator Louise Yates, has already secured a commission from UK pubcaster CBeebies. It was optioned for the small screen in 2012 by Random House Children’s Screen Entertainment, a UK-based production house created by Random House Children’s Books and Komixx Entertainment
The 52 x seven-minute series follows a bookshop owner named Dog and his best friend Pug. Whenever Dog or Pug have a problem to solve or a question to answer, they turn to their stack of books.
Aimed at four- to six-year-olds, the series will head into production this fall at Komixx’s Manchester-based animation studio.
Dog Loves Books is the latest series from Komixx, which is behind Toby’s Travelling Circus, Stanley, Wanda and the Alien and Fish Head Steve.
