Tubi picks up Aardman’s ‘Lloyd Of The Flies’ for US debut

Lloyd Of The Flies

Fox-owned US streamer Tubi has acquired animated kids’ comedy Lloyd Of The Flies from UK animation studio Aardman.

The show, which will premiere exclusively on Tubi in the US and Canada on 6 August, centres on Lloyd, a young fly who is the middle child of 451, living in an apple with his long-suffering parents, cheeky little sister and 224 maggots.

With his best friend Abacus the woodlouse, Lloyd faces endless awkward, annoying and occasionally life-threatening situations largely of his own devising – because when you’re only one centimeter high, even tiny problems can lead to massive consequences.

Lloyd Of The Flies made its global debut on CITV in the UK. It’s the first CGI series Aardman, which is also known for Wallace And Gromit and Shaun The Sheep, has produced entirely from its creative hub at its headquarters in Bristol.

The series was created and directed by Matthew Walker alongside co-director and voice director Jane Davies. The voice cast was led by Tom Rosenthal, Alex Lawther and Lauren Patel. The series was executive produced by Sarah Cox and Beth Parker, co-executive produced by Sean Clarke, Kerry Lock and Alison Taylor, and produced by Jacqueline White.

“Aardman is a beloved animation studio famous for their unique voice that appeals to children and adults alike, and Lloyd Of The Flies is yet another memorable story elevated by this cross-generational appeal,” said Tubi CCO Adam Lewinson.
