Melbourne, Australia-based animation studio BES has greenlit a second series of their hit children’s show Kitty is Not a Cat.

The animated comedy is aimed at 6-10 year olds and follows the adventures of Kitty, a young girl who has decided it would be a lot more fun to live life as a cat than an actual person.

The new 52 x 11-minute second series has been commissioned by the Australian national broadcaster Network Seven, where the show was first launched in May 2018 before being sold into 65 territories and translated into 25 languages worldwide.

Bruce Kane, Founder and Director BES Animation says: “We are thrilled to be announcing a second series of Kitty is Not a Cat. We are proud to be working with best in class partners – Network Seven, Jetpack Distribution and UniCreative – to deliver a series of the highest quality whilst equally growing and building our distribution around the world. Series two of Kitty is Not a Cat sets the stage to build the show into its next stage of development – a Consumer Products and Licensing program.”

BES Animation, the creators and producers behind the hit animated kid’s property, will unveil the new series at this year’s MIP Junior in France. Jetpack Distribution has been appointed as the global broadcast distribution partner, alongside UniCreative who will manage distribution in China.

Niki Hamilton, Executive Producer Network Seven adds: “Kitty Is Not a Cat is truly wonderful family entertainment that is proving to resonate with a world-wide audience. Seven believes Kitty has remarkable potential to be a successful children’s property and will continue to support BES Entertainment to produce an enduring brand.”

Series 2 of Kitty is Not a Cat is set for delivery in mid-2020.
