Tiger Aspect Kids & Family and Little Tiger announce collaboration on prospective TV options

Children’s publisher Little Tiger and leading television producer Tiger Aspect Kids & Family, part of Banijay Kids & Family, are joining forces with the intention to option and develop future animated and live action TV projects, aimed at children of all ages and families.

This exciting collaboration brings together both parties’ expertise and passion for children’s entertainment and education.

Little Tiger’s rich portfolio of bestselling and far-reaching books, featuring unforgettable characters, striking worlds and wide-ranging concepts, are the perfect source material to create innovative and entertaining TV for children and families.

Tiger Aspect Kids & Family’s presence internationally and its brilliant creative team, plus its similar business ethos, align with Little Tiger’s ambitions to nurture talent and grow in the entertainment space.

David Bucknor, Managing Director at Little Tiger said:

“Children’s books have always provided a treasure trove of stories to inspire film and TV. Over the last few years, we have seen a marked increase in interest in our books, from producers keen to feed the ever-growing number of platforms and distributors hungry for content.  As we embark on this exciting collaboration with Tiger Aspect Kids & Family, we look forward to working together creatively, and finding new ways of sharing our stories with screen audiences.”

Tom Beattie, Managing Director at Tiger Aspect Kids & Family said:

 “This felt like a perfect partnership, not just because we both have ‘Tiger’ in the company names. Little Tiger create some brilliant characters and worlds that fit with the Tiger Aspect Kids & Family DNA, and so it made sense to work more closely together. We have a proven track record of taking books to screen and we’re excited with what is to come.”

The deal was negotiated by Jude Evans on behalf of Little Tiger and Tiger Aspect Kids & Family’s Dee Stevens.
