BBC Studios Kids & Family Ties Up with Blink Industries


BBC Studios Kids & Family has entered into a first-look deal with Blink Industries, which is behind the animated rendition of the classic tale Peter and the Wolf.

Cecilia Persson, managing director of BBC Studios Kids & Family, said: “We are really looking forward to working with Blink Industries. This is a strong partnership between two companies that share the same creative vision to develop authentic content aimed at kids and family audiences globally. Blink Industries is an innovative and exciting company with proven global appeal. Combined with the commercial and creative expertise of BBC Studios, we are sure this will be the beginning of a hugely successful collaboration.”

The creative partnership grants BBC Studios Kids & Family exclusive access to Blink Industries’ slate of animation and live-action projects in a two-year deal.

BBC Studios Kids & Family will be taking the first projects from the partnership to market ahead of MIPCOM later this year.

James Stevenson Bretton, founder and managing partner at Blink Industries, said: “We’re thrilled to be embarking on this adventure with BBC Studios Kids & Family. The alchemy of BBC Studios’ commercial and creative insights and knowledge, alongside our unique offering as an independent studio, will allow us to make some big waves in the kids and family space across animation and live action.

“We house some of the most exciting creatives on the planet, and being able to introduce our development process and production wizardry to an ever greater audience is an incredible opportunity. We have already diversified into areas such as gaming, licensing and publishing, and BBC Studios’ enthusiasm for that growth is invigorating and will help us to expand our reach into even more ambitious IP and projects.”
