The Scottish children’s entertainment production company, Maramedia has acquired the rights to develop a new kids’ series based on Olga da Polga, a book series created by the celebrated children’s author and creator of Paddington Bear, Michael Bond.
The series will follow Olga da Polga, a loveable and imaginative guinea pig who likes to boast about her wild adventures to her group of animal friends.
The series will be developed by Maramedia’s children’s unit, Marakids.
Jackie Savery, co-founder and creative director of Maramedia, said: “We are thrilled for Marakids to take on this new children’s project to bring Michael Bond’s lively and humorous stories of Olga da Polga to life on the screen.”
Based in Scotland, Maramedia creates award winning natural history and children’s content for broadcast across a variety of platforms for international clients, including the BBC, Blue Ant Media, ITVG, PBS, National Geographic, France Televisions, Arte and ORF, working with key talent like David Attenborough, Ewan McGregor and David Tennant.
Recent productions include Wild Shetland – Scotland’s Viking Frontier, and Wild Way of the Vikings – both narrated by Ewan McGregor.
