Singapore – activeTV’s ABC production of Wacky World Beaters has been nominated in the Category of Children’s Non-Fiction at this year’s Rockie Awards.

The 20 x 24’ series follows the zany antics of Hosts Amberley and Gilly as they set off on a global adventure to find the world’s ultimate wacky sport.

Of the 6 nominated programmes, Wacky World Beaters is the only Australian show in this Category amongst a diverse range of shows representing excellence from across the World.

“We are very proud that Wacky has been nominated for this prestigious Award,” said Executive Producer, Amanda Peppard. “We were thrilled with the instant popularity of the series when it screened on ABC3 last year and now for the show to be recognised by the industry tops it all off.”

The series was an immediate hit when it aired in 2014 on the Australian children’s public digital television multichannel ABC3, achieving a significant 70% increase in average audience, compared to the 2013 timeslot average.
