ViacomCBS and Sky commission Magic Light’s Pip and Posy

Partnership for preschool series marks first joint co-production between ViacomCBS and Sky.

ViacomCBS and Sky have confirmed their first co-production partnership – for Magic Light Pictures’ preschool animation, Pip and Posy.

The 52 x seven-minute series will premier exclusively on Channel 5’s free to air Milkshake strand and Sky’s on demand service, Sky Kids.

Pip and Posy – which is produced by Magic Light Pictures, with animation services provided by Blue Zoo – follows a mouse and a rabbit whose lives revolve around a wonderful world of play.

The series deals with emotions, resilience and feelings in a relatable way for preschoolers to learn about themselves, all centred on creative play from a child’s point of view.

Currently in production, the series is based on characters from Nosy Crow’s popular collection of story books by multi award-winning illustrator Axel Scheffler and author Camilla Reid. It will be Magic Light’s first ever preschool series.

Pip and Posy will premiere on Milkshake and be available on demand on Sky Kids in early 2021. It will then also air on Nick Jr. a year later.

“We’re really excited to be producing our first-ever preschool series and proud to be working with Milkshake and Sky,” said Michael Rose, co-founder of 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.”
