CBeebies Orders Tree Fu Tom's Second Season

CBeebies has just commissioned a 2nd season of the hit preschool action-adventure series Tree Fu Tom. A co-production between FremantleMedia Enterprises and CBeebies in-house, the show originally received a lot of press as it features the voice talents of two former Doctor Who cast members, Sophie Aldred (who played the 7th doctor’s companion, Ace) and David Tennant (who played the doctor’s 10th incarnation).

Targeted towards kids aged 4 to 6, Tree Fu Tom uses heroic, fantasy, and action story elements along with unique interactive physical activity devised and approved by movement development specialists, which will help assist in the motor skills development of children.

Tree Fu Tom is currently CBeebies’ No. 1 show of the year, consistently raking in viewers since its launch in March this year. FME’s global sales team have also been selling the show internationally and have recently concluded deals with France (Lagardere), Australia/New Zealand (Disney), Israel (HopTV), Eastern Europe (Minimax), Korea (EBS), Brunei (RTB) and throughout the Latin America territories (Discovery Kids), with more in discussion. The series has already been sold to Italy (Switchover Media), Canada (Knowledge Network/BBC Kids), Norway (NRK), Belgium (VRT – Ketnet) and Finland (YLE).

“The show has performed exceptionally well in the U.K. and is already delivering strong international growth,” says Sander Schwartz, president of kids and family entertainment at FME. “The 26 new episodes will allow FME to increase the global reach for the series and further cement the brand’s position as a powerhouse preschool property.”
