Aardman Rights has secured international TV distribution rights for the preschool series, “Tilly and Friends,” based on books by Polly Dunbar and published by Walker Books.
The series was commissioned by CBeebies and is being produced by JAM Media. It has already been sold to some territories by JAM Media and Walker Rights. Aardman Rights will distribute to the rest of the world and will be presenting the show for the first time at MIP-TV.
“It’s a rare thing to find a show which is such a perfect fit with the Aardman brand and our existing stable of characters and ‘Tilly and Friends ‘is just the kind of property we’ve been looking to add to our very specialized portfolio,” says Alix Wiseman, head of sales for Aardman Rights. “Like all of our own productions, ‘Tilly and Friends’ has great storytelling and high production values, and we’re thrilled to be representing the series worldwide.”
