CBBC orders comedy drama Willow Wong[addthis tool="addthis_inline_share_toolbox_p9bf"]
CBBC in the UK has commissioned a live-action comedy drama from Warner Bros-owned prodco Wall to Wall and UK indie Serious Lunch that is due to air towards the end of 2021.
The World According to Willow Wong (10×30′) follows a young girl with a wild imagination that often springs to life from her doodles.
Each week she documents the weird and wonderful antics of her family in her webcomic, which is about to ramp up as her mysterious and mischievous Nai Nai (grandmother) comes to live with them.
Serious Lunch is currently seeking international pre-sales for the show.
Cheryl Taylor, head of content at BBC Children’s, told C21 this week she believes live-action scripted series starring and aimed at children could be some of the last shows to return to production during the pandemic.
