Tee and Mo Secures Second Series and Builds Licensing Programme
Tee and Mo features the adventures of fun-loving 3-year old monkey, Tee, and first-time, super-mum, Mo, as they navigate the swings and roundabouts of their life together, learning what it takes to be a son and a mum. The BAFTA-winning, co-viewing brand will be returning for a second series to CBeebies and TVO in Spring 2022, with 20 brand new 7-minute episodes, produced and animated in the UK and Isle of Man by Plug-in Media and Flix Facilities.
The first series of Tee and Mo, along with its nine animated song videos, and 11-minute musical special Big Boy Boots, have continued to perform well for a dual audience of pre-schoolers and their caregivers on CBeebies and BBC iPlayer. Superduo Tee and Mo, use teamwork and creative thinking to resolve life’s little challenges and series 2 not only builds on this theme but will delight audiences with new characters Bryn and Becca, and new locations, the beach and the jungle gym.
In addition to flagship UK broadcast partner, CBeebies, the series also now airs on more than 20 broadcast networks worldwide. Most recently the brand was announced as a flagship acquisition for Common Sense Media’s new OTT platform, Sensical in the USA, with new international broadcast partners coming on board throughout 2021.
Tee and Mo also continue to make a significant impact internationally on digital platforms. Its videos have gathered a stunning 285 million plus combined views on YouTube, with particularly strong reach in both the USA and India. Tee and Mo songs are also seeing significant growth on music streaming platforms worldwide.
Alongside its popular video and audio content, Tee and Mo is a growing consumer products and licensing programme, with recent Tee and Mo licensees being magazine publisher, Immediate Media and kids’ smart speaker system, Tonies. The Tee and Mo direct-to-consumer shop, managed directly by Plug-in Media, is also being expanded with new products including pyjamas and T-shirts, with a number of further products in development including stationery and paper goods. Toys and publishing are also being explored by consultant, Val Fry.
“We’re thrilled to be bringing new episodes of Tee and Mo to its growing global audience and that broadcasters have been so delighted by its enduring popularity and delightful, light-hearted storylines. Establishing our consumer products offering alongside the new series is key to building the brand’s popularity and we look forward to broadening our portfolio of licensees over the coming months and developing toys for launch at retail. It’s what parents have been asking for, and we can’t wait to give them all this and more over the course of the next eighteen months.” Juliet Tzabar, Managing Director.
