Sinking Ship Entertainment has picked up the distribution rights to the BBC Children’s Productions’ series "The Demon Headmaster", an episodic 10 x 22’ live action series based on the popular Gillian Cross book series. This part science fiction and part psychological thriller is aimed at kids aged 8-12 and is a reboot of the popular UK series produced in the 1990s of the same name.
When a group of five teens discover that the headmaster at their school is using his powers of hypnotism, brainwashing and tech surveillance to take control of their school, they must risk everything to defeat him. The series debuted in late 2019 on CBBC, with a new season set to go into production later this year.
