Singapore’s Omens Studios is partnering with prolific kids TV writer Adam Redfern to build out its preschool slate and prep for international expansion.

Omens has hired Redfern to consult as an executive producer and oversee its preschool projects, including 123 Number Squad! (pictured). This 11-minute, CG-animated spinoff from Counting with Paula (60 x 11 minutes) is in production now and follows a trio of kid superheroes who learn about numbers through adventures.

Redfern will also help develop new projects and up the quality of Omens’ catalogue so the studio can more easily generate international broadcast and licensing deals, according to a release.

Omens is also expanding into tween-skewing fare with Silas Hickey’s help, starting with two series currently in development—Amy & The Afterlife and Dragon Lizzardo.

Redfern has previously worked as a writer on kids series including One Animation’s Oddbods and Nickelodeon’s Paddington. He was also on staff at the BBC for more than a decade as a series producer and writer on CBeebies/CBBC shows such as Go Jetters, Mr Bloom’s Nursery, Tree Fu Tom and Gigglebiz. He plans to continue working with his existing clients as a freelancer.
