Sky and ViacomCBS Commission Magic Light Pre-School Series ‘Pip and Posy’.
BAFTA-winning duo Ellie Wyatt and Joss Peach (Tee and Mo, JoJo and Gran Gran), will be scoring forthcoming series Pip and Posy.
The 52 x 7-minute series will be produced by four-time Oscar® nominated, double BAFTA-winning Magic Light Pictures (The Gruffalo, Room on the Broom, Revolting Rhymes and recent hit The Snail and The Whale) with animation services provided by Blue Zoo.
Pip and Posy follows a mouse and a rabbit whose lives revolve around a wonderful world of play. Packed with warmth and humour, the series is a joyful celebration of their great friendship, its laughter and games, its ups and downs. The series deals with emotions, resilience and feelings in a relatable way for pre-schoolers to learn about themselves, all centred on creative play from a child’s point of view.
Currently in production, the series is based on characters from Nosy Crow’s popular collection of story books by multi award-winning illustrator Axel Scheffler and author Camilla Reid.
Pip and Posy is Magic Light’s first ever pre-school series and sees the continuation of the production company’s 13 year association with Axel, which has produced seven high profile animated specials based on his hugely successful book collaborations with author Julia Donaldson.
Pip and Posy will premiere on Milkshake! and will be available on demand on Sky Kids in early 2021. It will then also air on Nick Jr. a year later.
