MIPCOM Spotlight: BBC Studios Kids & Family


The BBC Studios Kids & Family MIPCOM slate features the animated preschool series Stan Can, about a highly resourceful hamster and his community of friends.

“The show is funny, playful and warm with a quirky humor and full to the brim with cute characters,” says Katharina Pietzsch, VP of content sales. “Also, Stanley has an amazing array of vehicles that really appeal to machine-obsessed little ones.”

The live-action comedy Popularity Papers follows two middle school best friends as they try to determine what popularity means by conducting a variety of social experiments. “It deals with issues that affect school-aged kids across the globe, like navigating their way through unfamiliar feelings, family drama, friendship and crushes,” Pietzsch notes.

There’s also a fourth season of Hey Duggee.

“We have a robust portfolio and dynamic development slate of entertaining and distinctive content,” adds Pietzsch.
