CCTV and ABC co-produce new children’s series
Filming is currently under way in Beijing on Hoopla Doopla, a brand-new preschool series co-produced by ABC Children’s Television in Australia and China’s CCTV.
The 52×12-minute live-action comedy series is dialogue-free. It revolves around six characters who tumble, juggle, leap and somersault into and out of trouble. The cast and production team hail from both China and Australia, including a Chinese and Australian director. The series will be filmed over six months on a specially designed studio set and will air on ABC4Kids in 2014.
Tim Brooke-Hunt, ABC’s controller of children’s TV, said: “We are delighted to extend our relationship with our friends at CCTV through this exciting new co-production.”
