Hit Entertainment has unveiled its new development slate, with its first property made the creator of Lunar Jim.
Mike the Knight is produced in CG animation, with the 52 x ten-minute series centring around ten year-old Mike who has a mission to be a knight.
In addition, Hit has begun work on pre-school show The Real Mees (52 x ten-minutes) with Waybuloo creator Dan Good. The CG animation encourages children under six to believe in themselves and Hit is working in conjunction with the creative team at UK-based production company Absolutely Cuckoo.
Finally, in early development from Firestep and Impossible Pictures is Kids Hate Clowns, which is aimed at eight to 12 year olds.
“We are thrilled to be working with some of the best creative talent in the industry talent,” said Chris Rose, director of new content at Hit Entertainment. “We have discovered some fantastic new shows that will not only perfectly complement Hit’s existing portfolio but enable us to expand our programming into a new demographic and exciting, new creative concepts.”
