UK broadcaster CBeebies has commissioned a brand new 50 x 11′ pre-school series set to air in 2015 from preeminent producer Ragdoll Productions. Twirlywoos, devised and executive produced by Anne Wood with lead creative and writer, Steve Roberts and producer, Chris Wood, combines stop-frame animation and live action sequences set in the real world. Executive Producer for CBeebies is Michael Towner. The series is produced in association with DHX Media, which will also handle global distribution, merchandising, brand management and marketing.
Continuing the innovative, nurturing, inspiring, children-led entertainment for which Ragdoll Productions is renowned, Twirlywoos features laugh-out-loud child-centric humour which encourages pre-schoolers to think for themselves, and gain confidence in their own perceptions of the world. Through the show, young audiences are able to reinforce their understanding as they grow and develop, becoming active and inquisitive within their own lives.
In September 2013 Canadian Company DHX Media acquired all the rights to Ragdoll Programmes, including Teletubbies but with the exception of Pob. This deal enabled Ragdoll to finance new productions starting with Twirlywoos in 2015.
Please note that any new version of past Ragdoll programmes (e.g. Teletubbies) will be produced by DHX Media and are no longer connected to Ragdoll.
