FME Partners with BBC for Davies Show

The BBC and FremantleMedia Enterprises have partnered with Russell T. Davies for a brand new action adventure drama, "Aliens Vs. Wizards." The show will air on CBBC this fall.“Aliens Vs. Wizards” has been created by Russell T Davies

“Aliens Vs. Wizards” has been created by Russell T Davies and Phil Ford ("The Sarah Jane Adventures," "Doctor Who") and will be produced by BBC Cymru Wales in association with FME’s Kids & Family Entertainment division.

FME will also manage worldwide distribution of the series (excluding the U.K.), as well as the brand licensing, home entertainment and other rights including publishing.

"Writing for children is the biggest challenge of all and I think CBBC stands right at the heart of broadcasting," says Davies. "So I'm delighted to launch this show, a true nationwide collaboration, a Salford commission from a BBC Wales team. We're joining genres too. The show's a wild, funny, thrilling and sometimes scary collision of magic and science fiction."
