Henson takes rights to Driftwood Bay

The Jim Henson Company’s third party licensing unit has taken international rights to Driftwood Bay, the new preschool series from indie producer Sixteen South.

The 52x7mins animated series is in production and will deliver next spring.

The show follows five-year-old Lily who lives in a beach hut with her Dad on an island. The series is inspired by the artwork of Joanne Carmichael, a mixed media artist.

“Having partnered with The Jim Henson Company on the production of Pajanimals, we’ve been impressed with the stellar reputation, breadth of relationships, trust and support that Henson brings to the project,” said Sixteen South founder Colin Williams.
