Popular live-action series from King Bert and WildBrain commissioned by CBBC and Family Channel and produced in association with BYUtv

King Bert and WildBrain have been commissioned by CBBC (UK) and Family Channel (Canada) to produce 26 new episodes of the live-action series, Malory Towers, in association with BYUtv (US). A hit with kids and families worldwide, Malory Towers first launched in March 2020 and has since been picked up by broadcast and streaming partners in more than a dozen territories. Shooting on the new episodes is slated to commence in the UK this spring and Canada this summer, with delivery targeted for later this year.

Set in the late-1940s on the sun-drenched cliffs of the Cornish coast, Malory Towers explores the nostalgic world of midnight feasts, lacrosse, ghost stories and lasting friendships. For a modern pre-teen audience, the show is both aspirational and inspirational because of the autonomy the girls have over their daily lives. Trusted to roam the school grounds on their own, characters enjoy independence, freedom and responsibility for their own time. 

Within this evocative setting, the characters – and their struggles and triumphs – are nonetheless real and relatable for today’s kids. For better or worse, the students at Malory Towers are a family. They keep an eye on each other, offer assertive guidance, keep each other entertained and, like a family, they are forever connected by their shared experiences. The stories are brought to life by an exceptionally talented ensemble of young actors.
