Guru’s Big Blue Greenlit in Canada


Guru Studio’s (PAW Patrol) new animated series Big Blue has received the green light from CBC/Radio-Canada.

The comedy-adventure show will debut on CBC Kids and ICI Radio-Canada Télé in 2020. Created by Gyimah Garibah, the series follows siblings and underwater adventurers Lettie and Lemo as they lead a quirky submarine crew with a magical ocean fairy stowaway named Bacon Berry.

Guru Studio is currently seeking international co-production partners to participate in the series.

Frank Falcone, the president and executive creative director of Guru Studio, said, “CBC/Radio-Canada is the perfect broadcast partner for Big Blue and the CBC Kids team is a blast to work with!”

“We are thrilled to partner with Guru Studio to bring Canadian audiences this visually remarkable series that will inspire kids to make their world a better place,” added Sally Catto, the general manager, of programming at CBC.

“We know kids will love this smart, funny show in which our characters uncover the mysteries of a vast ocean-covered planet across a season arc,” commented Marie McCann, the senior director of CBC Kids.

“Gyimah’s vision for this series has created a show with universal appeal and charm packed with comedy and high-stakes adventure,” remarked Rachel Marcus, development executive at Guru Studio.
