Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit organization behind Sesame Street, has launched a new comedic 2D animated preschool series, Bea’s Block, available on all Sky Kids platforms in the U.K. and Ireland. The show is part of the company’s ongoing content partnership with Warner Bros. Discovery.
Bea’s Block is a ‘kindness adventure’ following compassionate and curious five-year-old Bea and her two best friends, Ty and Lexi. The vibrant characters look like wooden blocks and exhibit unique physical humor as they zip, stack, and hop their way through their diverse and inclusive Blocktown neighborhood.
“Bea’s Block models kindness through friendship by showing how to be empathetic, compassionate, and respectful to others,” said Kay Wilson Stallings, Sesame Workshop’s Executive Vice President, Chief Creative Development and Production Officer. “Bea and her friends always want to help but it can take a little time to find the best way how. The series was created with the educational approach and heart you've come to expect from the maker of Sesame Street.”
Award-winning production studio A Productions developed the series’ animation and design look. Based in Bristol, U.K., the studio has animated Sesame Street specials Sesame Street The Nutcracker, The Monster at the End of This Story, and Furry Friends Forever: Elmo Gets a Puppy.
