Ragdoll Productions has appointed Brands with Influence to represent new CBeebies preschool series “B.O.T. and the Beasties."
The series was developed by Anne Wood and the team at Ragdoll’s studios in Stratford, U.K. It follows a loveable robot, B.O.T. (Beastie Observation Transmitter), who uncovers new worlds and discovers the beasties who inhabit them.
The BBC has acquired 50 episodes of the series. It will air in early 2021.
“We have been working with Ragdoll for the last 18 months through the development phase of this exciting new series, and it’s fabulous that we are now able to share this great show with the licensing industry,” says Martin Lowde, Brands with Influence. “With a strong commitment from CBeebies across their platforms and a great production team at Ragdoll, the series has all the ingredients needed in a new show.”
Brands with Influence is currently organizing a series of live online screenings and presentations.
“We are delighted to be working with the team at BWI,” says Chris Wood, Ragdoll. “Our new preschool ‘B.O.T. and the BEASTIES’ series is full of fun through silliness, play and imagination and has masses of potential for licensing as we have seen first-hand how children love to interact with the stories and characters.”
