Escapade Media Picks Up Bluenoses


Escapade Media has secured the worldwide rights to the animated series Bluenoses, produced by Hungry Head Productions UK.

Developed by Martin and Annie Chatterton, the series centers on Cookie and Big Ed, who open up a universe of inspiration with poems, drawings and music. Work from British children’s poet Paul Cookson is featured.

The Chattertons and Cookson believe in the educational power of combining word and image, and each episode draws on their experiences as performers at schools, colleges and festivals in the U.K., U.S., Australia, New Zealand, China, India, the Philippines, Malaysia, Turkey, France, Spain, Ireland and more.

“It’s really fantastic for us at Hungry Head to be working with Escapade on bringing Bluenoses to as wide an audience as possible,” said Richard Johnson of Hungry Head. “They share our belief in delivering both quality and entertainment in children’s content.”

Natalie Lawley, managing director of Escapade Media, added, “Escapade is honored to be working with this incredible talent and bringing Bluenoses to children around the world. The tour has built a foundation of little fans across so many territories; it makes sense to grow the brand by introducing the series and building on this foundation.”
