CBBC, CBeebies Commission JAM’s Little Roy and its Spin-Off


Dublin’s JAM Media has got a good deal going on right now, scoring a cross-over commission from both CBBC and its CBeebies arm for the live-action/animation hybrid series Little Roy, spurred on by the success of the preschool series Roy, which is currently airing on CBBC.

Little Roy focuses on the titular 5 year old boy as he goes on a journey of self discovery through imaginative play. The series mixes comedy with highly educational and emotional content.

Aside from the Little Roy deal, CBBC has also commissioned a spin-off called The Roy Files, which features an 11 year old version of the character and a mockumentary format. The series has Roy turning his history homework into a scrapbook about himself that features new material and highlights from previous seasons of Roy.
