Motion Pictures has secured a deal with Channel 5’s Milkshake! for the first two seasons of its new 2D animation MyaGo, which will see the pre-school series debut in the UK in January 2020.

Co-produced with Irish studio Piranha Bar, both seasons (104 x 5’30’) have also been picked up by RTP in Portugal, where its set to launch in Q1 2020, and by ETB for launch in the Basque region of Spain next April. Motion Pictures has sold both seasons of MyaGo to Discovery Kids MENA, where the first season started airing in September 2019.

Jorge Patiño, Executive Producer at Motion Pictures says: “With MyaGo’s international roll-out well underway, we’re thrilled Channel 5’s Milkshake! is now set to become its UK home and to see the show’s presence strengthen even further in Europe.

“For season three, we’re looking to bring MyaGo’s values of gender equality further to the forefront and introduce storylines that give a presence to multiculturalism and racial diversity in this unique and colourful series.”

Greenlit and set to enter production in January 2020, the third season of 52 x 5’30’ episodes will be produced in 4K and feature brand-new characters, locations and countries.

Sam Morrison (Peppa Pig, Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom and Octonauts) serves as lead writer on the series, which tells the story of Mya, a young girl whose enthusiasm infects everyone around her. She lives in the very busy town of Everyday with her closest friends Suzie Play, Emily Share and the hilarious Tommy Stop. With her fearless sense of adventure, she tries things for the first time with an ambitious and go-getter attitude.

The series will also be brought to life in a suite of five interactive apps, developed in collaboration with the image and sound academy ITES.
