Channel 5’s Milkshake! will broadcast “Wanda and the Alien” starting this month. The adventures of a little girl rabbit that befriends an alien, created by award-winning author and illustrator Sue Hendra, has been brought to screen by Random House Children’s Screen Entertainment, the jointly owned company of Komixx Entertainment and Random House.
As the debut broadcast partner, Milkshake! will air 52 10-minute programs every Saturday and Sunday.
“‘Wanda and the Alien’ is a beautiful property, with a real sense of magic and wonder at the world,” says Andrew Cole-Bulgin, partner and head of film and TV, RHCSE. “We wanted to do justice to Sue Hendra’s original books so we’ve invested in the U.K.’s best writing and animation talent to create a series that will delight audiences worldwide. With fantastic support from Nickelodeon and Channel 5 Milkshake! I'm certain the show will be a huge hit.”
