HIT Entertainment appointed BBC Worldwide as the magazine publisher for the new pre-school series, "Mike the Knight."
"Mike the Knight" will first be featured in BBC Worldwide's popular CBeebies magazine from November; and a standalone Mike the Knight magazine based on the series will be published next year.
“Everyone in the team is very excited about Mike the Knight magazine. Its fantasy world of knights, dragons and magic offers a wealth of opportunities for a new magazine that will have huge appeal for this audience,” says Pauline Cooke, BBC Magazines’ pre-school publisher. “This deal also enables us to build on our brilliant working relationship with HIT Entertainment, producers of award-winning children’s programs, with whom we’ve published the very successful Bob the Builder magazine for over 11 years.”
