London-based Zodiak Kids has acquired TV distribution rights to Plug-in Media’s new 2D-animated CBeebies series Tee & Mo.
CBeebies and Canadian nets TVO and Knowledge recently commissioned the new 50 x seven-minute series from UK-based digital media prodco Plug-in Media for broadcast in 2018. Following the daily adventures of a three-year-old monkey and its first-time mom, the series is produced in collaboration with Canada’s Radical Sheep Productions (a division of Boat Rocker Studios).
Tee & Mo initially launched as an online commission from CBeebies in 2013, marking Plug-in’s first foray into original content. Since then, CBeebies’ Tee & Mo games, shorts and music videos have generated more than nine million views and two BAFTA nominations. The shorts also won a Best Interstitials Prix Jeunesse award earlier this year.
