WGBH Plans Pinkalicious Series

Boston-based public broadcaster and producer WGBH has optioned the rights to “Pinkalicious,” the New York Times best-selling children’s book series by Victoria Kann.

The “Pinkalicious” books follow the life of Pinkalicious, a young girl who loves pink for all the right reasons. The book series, which is published by HarperCollins, debuted in 2006 and now includes nearly 40 titles.

WGBH will develop the books into an animated television series for 3- to 8-year-olds.

“We are thrilled to bring WGBH’s expertise in developing book-based series to the incredible world Victoria Kann has created,” says Dorothea Gillim, executive producer, "Curious George," who will oversee production. “Pinkalicious is a character kids really connect with–she’s an everyday girl who’s confident, knows what she likes and fancies herself special enough to wear a tiara and wand in her very colorful imagination.”
