BBC Worldwide Channels has unveiled Numtums Adventures (52 x 11’) as the latest new title in production for the international CBeebies network. The adventure comedy series was created as a result of BBC Worldwide Channels’ ongoing deal with CBeebies in-house productions in the UK. The series will make its worldwide debut on CBeebies in 2013/14.
Numtums Adventures was based on a series of five-minute learning shorts that currently air on the preschool channel in the UK and around the world to help children with their numbers. The new series targets upper pre-schoolers by introducing story driven episodes, fast paced comedy and visual humour, and distinct voices and personalities for the Numtum characters. Using CGI, each episode sees the number-obsessed heroes use their maths and number skills to resolve problems in their quirky hometown of Gumnut Gorge.
