Ben Faulks, star and co-creator of UK’s children’s TV brand Mr Bloom, is launching his own production company, Egg Power Productions.
The new venture will focus on developing and creating own original IP for both the domestic UK and international markets.
Egg Power’s first announced project, which is launching at this year’s virtual Kidscreen summit, is A Mug Of Tea With Emory, a 52 x 7-minute live action series aimed at 3-7-year-olds that will star Faulks as the host of an imaginative tea break.
Actor, writer and producer Faulks is the co-creator and star of CBeebies series Mr Bloom’s Nursery and also appears in spin-off shows Mr. Bloom’s Nursery: Get, Set, Grow! and Mr. Bloom: Here And There. He has also featured in numerous other CBeebies productions.
“After having spent over a decade working on the Mr Bloom brand with CBeebies, I’m incredibly excited to have established Egg Power Productions and be bringing our first show to Kidscreen 2021,” said Faulks.
“It’s my first time at a virtual market and I think the Kidscreen team have done a fantastic job in bringing people together, to share in ideas and allow the event to flourish in an online capacity.
“With all of us spending more time with our children over the last year, A Mug Of Tea With Emory feels incredibly timely – and a reminder that a little time, well spent, goes a long way.”
