Following the My Mum Tracy Beaker series earlier this year, CBBC has ordered a new series of The Beaker Girls.
Dani Harmer returns as Tracy Beaker and Emma Maggie Davies as her book-smart, sassy, surprisingly tough daughter Jess in new five-part series, The Beaker Girls, to air later this year on CBBC and BBC iPlayer.
Jordan Duvigneau is back as Sean Godfrey, Lisa Coleman as Cam, Montana Thompson as Justine and Danielle Henry as Mary, along with newcomer Chi-Megan Ennis McLean as Jordan and Alibe Parsons as junk shop owner, Flo.
The Beaker Girls is made by BBC Children’s In-House Productions and is due to start filming on location in Bristol later this month. The series is written by Emma Reeves. It was commissioned by Sarah Muller, Head of BBC Children’s Commissioning & Acquisitions 7+, Gina Cronk is the Executive Producer, John McKay is Producer/Director and Tali Walters is the Genre Lead.
Tali Walters, Genre Lead, BBC Children’s In-house Drama, says: “The enduring affection of our audiences for the character of Tracy Beaker was clear in the reaction to My Mum Tracy Beaker. The Beaker Girls promises to touch the hearts of our audiences and we’re tremendously excited to work with such a talented cast and crew to bring this captivating mother and daughter back to the screen to unveil their next chapter.”
