Wonder Lands Double Commission


Wonder, a Banijay Group company, has been commissioned to make the new children’s series Maddie, the Zoo and You, as well as a fourth season of Maddie’s Do You Know? for CBeebies.

In Maddie’s Do You Know?, STEM YouTuber Maddie Moate is back again for a fourth run, talking preschool viewers through the workings of amazing objects and scientific principles. The show uses graphics to explain often complex engineering in an exciting way, answering questions for inquisitive children and parents alike.

Maddie, the Zoo and You is a spin-off of Maddie’s Do You Know? and will see Moate exploring how the body works and how to stay healthy through the wonderful world of animals. By looking at how they eat, move, communicate and stay comfortable, she will help children understand these things about their own bodies.

Also commissioned is Maddie, the Zoo and You Songs, a fun and lively learning accompaniment to the series that will use rhymes and actions to reinforce messages from the show.
