Hoopla Animation has been commissioned by Channel 5 for a third and fourth series of Daisy & Ollie for its pre-school brand, Milkshake.


Hoopla Animation is set to produce 52 x 7 minute episodes, which will launch on Milkshake! from the 30th March. The series stars comedian Jason Manford, who is also an executive producer of the programme.  


The series follows Daisy and Ollie in their adventures, as they seek out the answers to real life questions from kids, with the help of music and songs.


The commission comes after Milkshake announced it would be increasing its content investment, which will result in 50 new UK originated hours per ear from 2021


Louise Bucknole, VP, Kids Programming at ViacomCBS Networks International said “It’s going to be an exciting year for Milkshake! and we’re thrilled to be kicking off with Daisy & Ollie as our first UK originated commission in 2020,” said Louise Bucknole, VP, Kids Programming at ViacomCBS Networks International. “Entertaining children through fun, relatable content and stand-out characters is key to our ethos for kids to understand themselves and with a fantastic talent like Jason Manford at the helm, our viewers are in for a treat!” 

Jason Manford, Exec Producer of Daisy & Ollie, comments: “I am absolutely over the moon that Daisy & Ollie is coming to Milkshake! with a brand new series. The show is such a pleasure to work on, especially as a parent myself, we all have brilliant fun figuring out the answers to life’s biggest questions and the new set of episodes are bound to keep the whole family entertained.”


Helen Brown, Company Director of Hoopla Animation & Executive Producer on Daisy & Ollie said: “Creating and developing the brand new series of ‘Daisy & Ollie’ has been amazing and I’m absolutely thrilled that it will now be shown on Channel 5’s Milkshake! and available on My5, to even more households across the country. As a Mum myself, I wanted to create a show that empowered our kids with knowledge and encouraged them to be even more inquisitive. The new series is filled with fun and engaging questions sure to do just that.”
