BKN will be showing off two brand new pilots at this week's MIPTV festival in Cannes.

The two series - Stone Age and Pocket Penguin Adventures (pictured) - have already received good interest from the market, according to the firm. Both projects are due to be delivered in spring 2009.

TV sales are planned for MIP and several early licensing deals are already being contemplated.

Meanwhile, BKN is due to expand its European studio to include its Cologne operations.

"We are very pleased with the quality and performance of our London and Barcelona studio, and are adding infrastructure and talent in Cologne to the mix to take full advantage of capacity and talent in all three locations," said Allen Bohbot, CEO at BKN.

In addition to all of this, BKN is also celebrating the success of Legend of the Dragon, which launched on the Toasted TV block of Australia's Ten Network in February. There are already reports that the show has consistently built in audience numbers throughout its run and is still building.
