Canada-based children’s content giant WildBrain has acquired the worldwide distribution rights, excluding the UK, to upcoming kids’ series The Brilliant World of Tom Gates.

Based on Liz Pichon’s Tom Gates book series, the 20×11’ TV adaptation is being produced by TG Entertainment for Sky in the UK and Ireland.

It will premiere on Sky Kids in early 2021, coinciding with the 10th anniversary of the first Tom Gates book and the publication of the 18th in the series, Tom Gates: Ten Tremendous Tales.

Aimed at children aged seven to 12, The Brilliant World of Tom Gates combines 2D and stop-motion animation with live-action. Each episode will feature an original animated Tom Gates story, interwoven with craft ideas, drawing, interactive games and songs.
