To celebrate the world premiere of the new sci-fi/eco-conscious comedy Big Blue on CBC Kids in Canada this Saturday, December 4 (followed by Nickelodeon/Nicktoons U.K. next month), Guru Studio has unveiled the official series theme song sequence. The energetic video brings us into a colorful underwater world as our young heroes bop to an original song created by Grammy-winning music producer Timbaland and his Beatclub team.
Big Blue follows sibling underwater adventurers Lettie and Lemo, who lead a quirky submarine crew with a magical ocean fairy stowaway named Bacon Berry. Together, they just might unravel the mysterious secrets of their underwater universe! The series drops young viewers deep into a wacky world of comic adventure, while helping to redefine what a family means and how caring for one another is the most important thing of all.
The series was created by Guru Studio designer Gyimah Gariba, who has built a massive online following for his distinct illustrative style. Gariba was named one of “15 Young African Creatives Rebranding Africa” by Forbes and as one of Animation Magazine‘s “Rising Stars of Animation 2020.”
Big Blue is produced by Guru Studio, the powerhouse animation studio behind the global phenomenon PAW Patrol, the Netflix Original series True and the Rainbow Kingdom and new series Pikwik Pack on Disney Junior and Hulu.
The series will premiere in Canada on CBC Kids and will be available to stream on CBC Gem starting Saturday, December 4 at 10:10 a.m. Additional international broadcasters on board include Nickelodeon in the U.K., ABC Me in Australia, CTC Kids in Russia and NRK in Norway.
Timbaland is currently developing a brand new creative enterprise called Beatclub, a music marketplace and creator club which is a place for A-list producers to sell beats, sound packs, and loops online. The new company aims to be the creative hub of the music industry.
