Beep & Mort Set for New Sky Kids Channel


The puppet-based series Beep & Mort has been added to the lineup of the recently launched Sky Kids ad-free linear channel in the U.K.

Produced by Windmill Pictures, the series follows the adventures of best friends Beep, a robot from the stars, and Mort, a cuddly creature from Mollyvale.

ABC Commercial licensed the series to Sky Kids, which is also making it available for viewers on-demand.

The series is directed by Rosemary Myers (Girl Asleep, Bluey’s Big Play), produced by Kaye Weeks (Beep), features production design by Jonathon Oxlade (Girl Asleep, Bluey’s Big Play) and original music by Harry Covill (Girl Asleep).

Myers said: “It’s so exciting to be part of the lineup on a brand-new channel for kids launching on the other side of the globe. Beep & Mort is lovingly made by a team of super-talented people who are thrilled to share the furry fun of Mollyvale and the ongoing adventures of its adorable characters. Universal themes of friendship and community are at the center of the show, and we hope kids and families across the U.K. will take joy in the humor and heart of this puppet-based, three-dimensional world we’ve created.”

Karen Quinn, manager of content sales for ABC Commercial, said: “The ABC is renowned for creating and commissioning high-quality, engaging children’s content, and Beep & Mort fits firmly in that category. Sky Kids’ acquisition of Beep & Mort will fit seamlessly into their launch lineup and beyond. We’re thrilled that U.K. audiences can now enjoy this beautiful Australian production.”
