Aardman has secured the global distribution rights to Baby Cow Productions’ first pre-school series, Wussywat.
The first episodes of the 2D series – produced by Baby Cow Productions, Smiley Guy Studios and Bigfatstudio – will launch on CBeebies in Spring 2015.
Wussywat follows the slapstick antics of a curious cat as he explores the owrl of The Garden with his friends and his uncoordinated clumsiness.
Aardman’s rights and brand development team has secured the global distribution rights and will be taking the first finished episodes to Kidscreen in Miami and MIPTV in April.
“It is a delight to be working with these masters of comedy and it will come as no surprise to those familiar with their work that they have produced such a joyful show with real funny bones,” said Alix Wiseman, head of sales and acquisitions for Aardman.
“We know it will do well on pre-school platforms across the globe.”
