Mike the Knight is by Lunar Jim creator Alexander Bar. Produced in CG animation, the 52 x 10 min series centres around 10-year old Mike, whose mission to “Be a Knight, do it right” sees him set out to protect his kingdom and make his Mum proud. Dragons, magic and humour are the key ingredients of the pre-school series.

The firm has also started development on another new pre-school show The Real Mees (52 x 10) with Waybuloo creator Dan Good. Confidence, self belief and citizenship are the basis of the CG animated show which encourages children under six to believe in themselves. HIT is working in conjunction with the creative team at UK-based production company Absolutely Cuckoo.

In early development from Firestep & Impossible Pictures, Kids Hate Clowns focuses on Chloe, a prim and proper thirteen year-old as her world is turned upside down when her three distant relatives, who are clowns, turn up on her doorstep and announce they’re moving in.

Chris Rose, director of new content at Hit said: "We are thrilled to be working with some of the best creative talent in the industry today. We have discovered some fantastic new shows that will not only perfectly complement Hit’s existing portfolio but enable us to expand our programming into a new demographic and exciting, new creative concepts."
