Tiger Aspect Kids & Family, Little Tiger collaborate on TV options
March 2, 2023
Tiger Aspect Kids & Family (part of Banijay Kids & Family) will join forces with children’s publisher Little Tiger, with the intention to option and develop future animated and live action TV projects, aimed at children of all ages and families.
Tom Beattie, Managing Director at Tiger Aspect Kids & Family, said: “This felt like a perfect partnership, not just because we both have ‘Tiger’ in the company names. Little Tiger creates some brilliant characters and worlds that fit with the Tiger Aspect Kids & Family DNA, and so it made sense to work more closely together. We have a proven track record of taking books to screen and we’re excited with what is to come.”
David Bucknor, Managing Director at Little Tiger, added: “Children’s books have always provided a treasure trove of stories to inspire film and TV. Over the last few years, we have seen a marked increase in interest in our books, from producers keen to feed the ever-growing number of platforms and distributors hungry for content. As we embark on this exciting collaboration with Tiger Aspect Kids & Family, we look forward to working together creatively, and finding new ways of sharing our stories with screen audiences.”
Under the leadership of Beattie, Tiger Aspect Kids & Family’s notable credits include Aliens Love Underpants, Charlie and Lola, Mr Bean: The Animated Series, Danny & Mick, Tinga Tinga Tales Corpse Talk and the recently announced Super Happy Magic Forest.
