Plug-in Media’s has placed its animated series Tee and Mo with CBeebies in the U.K., securing a 50 x 7 min. series order.
The channel has also committed to expanding the brand’s presence in the digital space over the next two years, with new content set to appear on the CBeebies website as well as on YouTube, online radio and in the channel’s Storytime app.
The acquisition marks a move into linear TV production by the BAFTA-award winning Plug-in Media, which has traditionally focused its business on the interactive digital space.
The new series has been originated by Plug-in Media’s Creative Director, Dominic Minns and will be a 2D-animated dual audience show for children ages 3-5.
It follows the adventures of new monkey mom, Mo, and her son, Tee, as they navigate the ebb and flow of everyday life. Tee is the go-to monkey for fun and adventure; Mo is a super-monkey mom, juggling her busy jungle life. They sometimes want to do different things but they always end up having fun together.
Tee and Mo originally launched on the CBeebies website and channel in 2013 as 10 games and 10 animated interstitials.
