Big news from Beano today! We’re taking over SKY KIDS! Yep, brand-new TV show ‘SO Beano!’ is inspired by the rebellious and anarchic ethos of Beano.com and we cannot wait.
Filmed at Sky’s state of the art facilities, we’ll be bringing you the hottest trends and most loved content on Beano.com – from mad dance crazes and LOL-tastic comedy sketches to guest challenges and fresh new cartoons.
The 15-minute show is aimed at 8-11-year olds and will showcase brilliant, young, diverse UK creatives both in front of and behind the camera. The show includes eight unique sketch acts and fresh talent in the form of presenters, animators, comedy writers and performers. Plus, SO Beano! is hosted by rising YouTuber Joe Tasker, comedy actress Nimisha Odedra, online fan favourite Emma Shaw and Joseph Robinson who makes his debut TV appearance.
Here’s what our boss Emma Scott (CEO of Beano Studios) said: “It’s so great to work with the highly innovative, creative team at Sky Kids and bring the very best of our riotous daily Beano digital mayhem to its audiences! We’re really excited to showcase new, young and unsung UK digital talent with such a well known broadcaster. This new TV show embodies our kid-led mentality by bringing their loves and obsessions to screens across the land in a festival of hyper-relevant mayhem!”
You’ll be able to watch SO Beano! on Sky, the SKY KIDS app and NOW TV kids platform later in the autumn.
