The series will premiere exclusively on Channel 5’s free-to-air station Milkshake! and Sky’s
on-demand service Sky Kids. It will debut on Milkshake! and be available on demand on Sky Kids in early 2021.
“’Pip and Posy’ is a delightful series that captures the essence of how young children play, think and feel and fits perfectly with our portfolio of educational and fun programming, teaching preschoolers the importance of friendship and understanding their emotional and social wellbeing through imaginative storytelling and creative play,” says Louise Bucknole, vice president programming kids, ViacomCBS Networks U.K. “We have a long-running and close relationship with Sky, so it’s very exciting to have commissioned our first co-production together, enabling us to bring the very best of British animation to Milkshake! from world class producers Magic Light Pictures.”
“We’re really excited to be producing our first-ever pre-school series and proud to be working with Milkshake! and Sky,” says Michael Rose, co-founder, Magic Light. “[Axel Scheffler] creates truly enchanting worlds and we can’t wait for viewers to join Pip and Posy for their fun and adventures.”
“Pip and Posy” has been jointly commissioned by Louise Bucknole for Milkshake! and Lucy Murphy for Sky Kids with the participation of ZDF, Germany.
