BBC kids channels CBeebies and CBBC have jointly commissioned a new 52x14mins season of Little Roy.

Little Roy - JAM MediaThe animated series will go out across the preschool CBeebies channel and its older-skewing sibling CBBC.

Little Roy was a spin-off from animated series Roy, and CBBC has also ordered a new show featuring the animated character, the live-action and animation mockumentary The Roy Files. The 15x14mins show is currently in production.

All of the Roy shows are produced by Jam Media, which will also handle international sales of Little Roy and The Roy Files.

John Rice, CEO JAM Media said: “We are thrilled once again to be working not only with CBBC but also CBeebies to build the franchise together and take the show to a new audience.

“Little Roy promises to be an ideal cross over show for CBBC and CBeebies. Wonderful also to be making The Roy Files for CBBC which has Roy reflecting on past adventures.”
