CBC/Radio-Canada has greenlit Big Blue, the new animated series from Toronto-based Guru Studio. The 52 x 11 minute comedy/adventure show is set to debut on CBC Kids and ICI Radio-Canada Télé in 2020.
Aimed at kids ages five to nine, the series follows the underwater adventures of Lettie and Lemo as they explore and protect an ocean-covered planet. The show’s combination of humor and action is designed to inspire kids’ interest in the ocean and all of the creatures that dwell underwater.
Big Blue was created by Gyimah Gariba and developed with CBC Kids and Jason Hopley (Wandering Wenda, You & Me). Currently, Guru Studio is seeking international co-production partners for participation in the series.
The show joins other Guru properties such as Nickelodeon’s PAW Patrol and the Netflix Original preschool series True and the Rainbow Kingdom.
