Picnic with Cake is based on the picture book by Thé Tjong-Khing, published in more than 13 countries, about the case of some missing cakes that Mr. and Mrs. Dog bake for a picnic with all their animal friends. Each episode tells the same central storyline, but from the perspective of a different character. Produced by Submarine, Walking the Dog and Tomavistas.
Story Time! is a collection of beautiful tales, both forgotten wonders and original stories. The series has been designed to pass on these narratives and to open children’s minds to other cultures. Set to beautiful music, each episode takes viewers on a new journey. Produced by Le Regard Sonore.
Will is a short-form comedy for kids 6-10, in which young Will faces the camera to relate his daily adventures with his lovely family and friends. Being wheelchair-bound does not prevent him from living a normal life. Quite the contrary: Life is one long joyride for Will, so get your skates on because you’ll have to move fast to keep up with him. Produced by Cross River Productions.
