CBBC — in partnership with BBC Worldwide — is launching its first ever animated series pilot initiative, ANIM8. The pubcaster is seeking pitches for character-driven toon comedies from U.K. creators for possible development.
ANIM8 is now open for submissions aimed at older kids with rapid-fire humor, unpredictable original stories and a unique world view. Any looks and techniques are welcome, including mixed media, to be submitted by animators with at least two broadcast, published or digital commissioned titles in their credits by January 22, 2016.
Complete details and the submission form are available at bbc.co.uk/ANIM8. Finalists selected for the pilot production stage will be announced in April.
