Random House Children’s Screen Entertainment and Komixx Entertainment have recently announced that the hit property Wanda and the Alien has just been comissioned by Channel 5’s Milkshake! for broadcast in 2013/14.
Wanda and the Alien is based on a series of books about a little girl rabbit who meets an alien. The book was written by award-winning author and illustrator Sue Hendra and aims to celebrate how people are both alike and different, teaching pre-school boys and girls compassion, friendship, and acceptance.
The Wanda and the Alien animated series is already in production, with an expected 52 x 10 minute programs that use flash animation. The first episode was broadcast in Q4 2013:
Jessica Symons, Head of Children’s at Channel 5 comments: “Wanda and the Alien is absolutely delightful and is sure to capture the imagination of our young audience. It will be a wonderful addition to Milkshake’s superb line up of top pre-school programmes and we’re thrilled to be working with RHCSE on their first book-to-screen transfer.”
