MCC Media produces 20-episode live action series for CBeebies

Teletubbies was originally produced by Anne Wood’s Ragdoll Productions and ran for 365 episodes from 1997 until 2001.

Ragdoll Worldwide, the joint venture established by Wood and BBC Worldwide to house brands including Teletubbies and In The Night Garden, was acquired by DHX Media for £17.4m in September 2013.

The new series, which will see the return of Tinky-Winky, Dipsy, Laa Laa and Po, will introduce a group of Tiddlytubbies and a hidden glade called the Hidey Hup.

CBeebies controller Kay Benbow said: “I am delighted to commission more episodes of this much loved show, so that the CBeebies audience can continue to enjoy and discover a world of fun in Tubbyland.”
