ABC Commercial to debut Bobbie the Bear at MIP Junior

 

ABC Commercial has been appointed the international distribution partner for the new Australian series, Bobbie the Bear (10 x 3’ HD), created by Lavender Bear Productions.

Bobbie the Bear is a delightful live-action animation series about the adventures of a very cute, resourceful and inquisitive purple bear.

The series was inspired by the incredible popularity of a soft lavender-scented purple bear called Bobbie which has taken Asia by storm. Last year, more than 65,000 tourists flocked to the Tasmanian lavender farm where the series is set to pick up their own bear, where demand far exceeds supply.

Bobbie together with his animal friends - including a Tasmanian tiger, a Tasmanian devil, an owl, a bug and bees - explore the world around them solving any problem that comes their way.

“We are thrilled to be taking the gorgeous Bobbie the Bear to an international audience,” said Sharon Ramsay-Luck, Head of Sales & Business Development for ABC Commercial. “The series is the perfect fit for our children’s catalogue, which is renowned for its high quality content. The beautifully crafted storylines together with the scenic lavender farm where the series is set has created a magic that will appeal to all ages, worldwide.”

Ben Adams, Executive Producer at Lavender Bear Productions said, “This is an exciting time for Bobbie the Bear. Our new partnership with ABC Commercial means we can build upon the phenomenal success of Bobbie in Asia, and extend our audience reach to create a whole new fan base around the world.”

Bobbie the Bear is produced by Ben Adams and Peter Flynn, and directed by Jody Dwyer. Production company is Lavender Bear Productions.
