JoJo & Gran Gran, the UK’s first preschool animated series featuring a Black British family, will return to CBeebies for series two and three following a double-win commission for BBC Children’s In-House Productions.
The animation tells the story of a four year-old girl and her fun and wise grandmother who cares for JoJo while her parents are working.
Since its unparalleled debut, JoJo & Gran Gran, based on the wonderful books created by Laura Henry Allain, has received over 14m requests on BBC iPlayer, making it a firm favourite with the preschool audience.
Helping to delight millions of fans are BAFTA-winning composer team Ellie Wyatt and Joss Peach (Tee and Mo, Pip and Posy) along with Jamie Salisbury (Lagging) who will be scoring music throughout the two series.
JoJo & Gran Gran is a BBC In-House production for CBeebies. The series producer is Tom Cousins and the show returns next year.
