Wandering Wenda - New Series



KIDS’ CBC GREENLIGHTS WANDERING WENDA BASED ON BEST-SELLING AUTHOR MARGARET ATWOOD’S CHILDREN’S BOOK THE WIDE WORLD OF WANDERING WENDA


Kids’ CBC today announced that new animated series WANDERING WENDA (26x8) from Breakthrough Entertainment has been greenlit. Inspired by Margaret Atwood’s children’s book The Wide World of Wandering Wenda, the alliterative series follows young Wenda and her two best friends as they embark on magical adventures.  Production by Breakthrough Entertainment and PIP Animation began in November 2015 and broadcast is slated for winter 2017.

“I'm delighted that Wenda has wandered her way into the wild world of television and wish her well on her adventures,” said author Margaret Atwood.



“Kids’ CBC is home to an impressive line-up of original children’s programming developed by top-tier talent and storytellers and Margaret Atwood’s Wandering Wenda is a perfect addition to our portfolio,” said Martin Markle, senior director of Children's Content for CBC. “We are excited to welcome Wenda to the Kids’ CBC family.”

Children will be transported into an exhilarating world of action, adventure and alliteration as they follow Wenda and her two best friends, Wu and Wesley Woodchuck on a series of wild, weird and wonderfully exciting adventures. No matter where Wenda wanders, she always finds herself mixed up in the middle of mayhem and when the going gets tough she uses her words. With some quick wordplay, Wenda manages to get out of the trickiest situations. By changing words she is able to shape her adventure and adapt the world around her to help her out of some sticky situations. Each episode will be a whimsical, globe-trotting adventure of sound, word and letter exploration aimed at early readers. Wenda and her friends allow audiences to share as they venture into daring exploits and new travel destinations, and armed with the power of words there is nothing they can’t overcome.

“We’re beyond thrilled to be working with Margaret Atwood on her inspiring children’s stories and cannot imagine a better home for this magical series than Kids’ CBC,” said Joan Lambur, executive vice president, Family Entertainment, Breakthrough Entertainment.
