Beano Studios has partnered with Sky’s children’s entertainment block, Sky Kids to produce a new TV show called SO Beano.
Filmed at Sky’s studios, the presenter-led entertainment show is inspired by current trends and best loved content on Beano.com, from dance crazes and comedy skits to guest challenges and new cartoons.
A run of 26 episodes, 15 minutes in length and aimed at eight to 11 year olds will showcase the diversity of UK creatives in front and behind the camera. The show includes eight unique sketch acts and fresh talent in the form of presenters, animators, comedy writers and performers.
The show will be available for customers on Sky, the Sky Kids app and Now TV and will be presented by the rising YouTuber Joe Tasker, comedy actress Nimisha Odedra, online fan favourite Emma Shaw and Joseph Robinson who makes his debut TV appearance.
Emma Scott, CEO of Beano Studios, said: “It’s so great to work with the highly innovative, creative team at Sky Kids and brin the very best of our riotous daily Bano digital mayhem to its audience.
“We’re really excited to showcase new, young and unsung UK digital talent with such a well known broadcaster. This new TV embodies our kid-led mentality by bringing their loves and obsessions to screens across the land in a festival of hyper-relevant mayhem.”
Head of Sky Kids, Lucy Murphy, added: “We can’t wait to bring a bit of mischief to Sky Kids this autumn. This show really celebrates all the humour, mayhem and irreverence that kids (and their parents) love from the Beano.
“There isn’t a kids show out there like it and it promises to bring something fresh to our screens that taps into everything kids love.”
