UK- and US-based family entertainment producer Komixx Media Group has fetched a new broadcast partner for its animated series Dog Loves Books, with Finnish broadcaster YLE coming on board for the series based on Louise Yates’ award-winning books. The 52 x 7 series is aimed at kids ages 4-6.
Dog Loves Books tells the story of bookshop owner Dog and his best friend Pug. Whenever Dog or Pug have a problem to solve or a question to answer, they look in one of their beloved books. The fun really begins when Dog opens a book and he and Pug are swept away into an imaginative world of adventure, where anything is possible.
The cartoon has been developed from the books by Melanie Halsall, Head of Development at Komixx; and award-winning screenwriter Alan Gilbey. CBeebies has already been confirmed as the primary UK broadcaster for Dog Loves Books, which is currently in pre-production and due to enter production this fall at Komixx’s animation studio, Mackinnon & Saunders Digital Studios in Manchester.
