"Messy goes to Okido"
UK indie Doodle Production has completed the production for the 3rd season of "Messy goes to Okido" for CBeebies and HBO Max. The company has also signed a worldwide distribution deal with Serious Kids for all 104 episodes and has big plans to provide interactive content based on the monthly Okido magazine via an all new app.
“Series 3 will be delivered this November and we are incredibly excited to see it launch both in the UK and USA. We are thankful to CBeebies and HBO as well as UYoung who are invested in the property. Genevieve Dexter was EP on the first season and so appointing Serious Kids was a natural move and we are confident they will do a great job. We are planning to launch an interactive version of the magazine via the existing subscription model for 2023," said Jules Coke, EP of Messy goes to Okido, Series 3.
"Messy Goes to Okido" is a STEAM CG animated series for 3-6 year olds which aims to inspire the next generation of scientists. Loveable Messy Monster brings science to life as he adventures through the colourful world of Okido, with sidekick Zoom. They bravely go on journeys of discovery and - with help from the ever-eccentric scientists, Zim and Zam - they unearth the answers to their big questions.
“'Messy Goes to Okido' is really the only series that can deliver comedy and core science to this age group, and it is creators are still integral to the IP which is held within Doodle Productions. Representing a brand that has had so much effort, time and money invested over the past 10 years is a dream for us and we are able to draw on that creativity to maximise its reach internationally. We will have Series 3 to share at MIPCOM where we will have a strong presence," added Genevieve Dexter, CEO of Serious Kids.
