FremantleMedia Enterprises (FME) and CBBC have announced the production of a new, multi-media, comedy series for kids ages 6-11 years-old. Strange Hill High is a 13 x half-hour comedy series produced with an all-new innovative technique combining puppets, stop-motion and CG, dubbed “hypervynorama”.
Set in an all-but forgotten inner-city school with a plethora of secrets and mysteries, the show follows a team of three students who take it upon themselves to investigate all manner of bizarre and other-worldly occurrences that seem to only happen at Strange Hill High.
FME will manage worldwide distribution of the series (excluding the UK), as well as the brand licensing, home entertainment and other ancillary rights on behalf of CBBC and FME’s Children & Family Entertainment division. Launching the brand at Licensing International Expo in Las Vegas, FME is actively pursuing partners across multiple licensing categories including vinyl toys, gaming, mobile, sponsorship, online, live events and more.
