CAKE has inked a deal with ITV on Wildseed Studios’ school-based animated kids’ comedy Dodo.
Dodo launched on September 20 at 5:30 p.m. on CITV, which will air 40 episodes after a second season was greenlit by Sky.
The show follows everyday school life as experienced by 11-year-old Joe Connolly as he navigates the dramas and pitfalls of his first year at secondary school.
Aimed at children aged 8-plus and families, Dodo is based on the film and YouTube hit Not the End of the World by Jack Bennett.
Ed Galton, CEO at CAKE, said, “A second season means more drama for Joe and his friends, and we are delighted to have ITV on board in this funny and poignant coming-of-age comedy which perfectly captures the hilarious and awkward experiences of teenage years.”
Darren Nartey, acquisitions manager for films and kids at ITV, said, “We are absolutely delighted to be bringing Dodo to CITV’s audience. It’s a cheeky, funny, unique and heartwarming comedy that mirrors contemporary life for many children across the U.K.”
