"Beep and Mort"
Flagship ABC Commercial preschool program "Beep and Mort" has been nominated at 2024 Kidscreen Awards for Best Live-Action Series. From ABC Children’s commissioning team and produced by Windmill Pictures, "Beep and Mort" is a funny and charming series for kids that uniquely celebrates the nature of friendship.
Producer Kaye Weeks said: "We are thrilled to have been nominated for this prestigious international award and for 'Beep and Mort' to sit alongside the iconic 'Sesame Street' in our category. It was at Kidscreen 2018 that we first pitched this project, so to be up for an award at the same event six years later is a particularly special, full-circle moment."
With the second season of "Beep and Mort" just launched on ABC Kids in its home territory, the fan base for this premium, entertaining program has found fans in the UK and Canada, as well as in Australia.
Head of ABC Children's Libbie Doherty said “It was obvious from the very first meeting with Windmill Pictures that 'Beep and Mort' was going to be something special. As we have seen with the hugely successful Bluey, our home-grown stories can be universally appealing and be embraced by families everywhere – and we are confident that the adventures of Beep, Mort and their Mollyvale friends are going to continue to resonate in hearts and minds around the world. It is a testament to the quality of this beautiful series that it has garnered a Kidscreen Award nomination amongst such pre-school giants and we couldn’t be more thrilled”.
Produced by Windmill Pictures, "Beep and Mort" is directed by Rosemary Myers ("Girl Asleep"), produced by Kaye Weeks, features production design by the AACTA award-winning Jonathon Oxlade ("Girl Asleep") and original music by Harry Covill ("Girl Asleep").
