WotWots Children's TV Show set to launch on TV2

From the creative minds of the Academy Award winning Weta Workshop comes the WotWots, a stunning new television series for preschoolers.
Set to delight audiences around the world in 2009, TVNZ will launch this much anticipated program in its primetime kids slot on TV2, Monday 23rd March at 8.50am, screening weekdays.
To celebrate the arrival of the WotWots, Wellington Zoo will host an official launch on the 22nd March 2009, including a WotWots fun day and media event. The fun day will include exclusive preview screenings, visits from SpottyWot and DottyWot, treasure hunts, face painting, plus many more fun wotified activities.
Filmed at Wellington and Auckland Zoos, this homegrown sensation follows the adventures of two adorable siblings from outer space, SpottyWot and DottyWot. These delightful creatures come to explore planet earth in their steam-powered spaceship and land themselves in the middle of a zoo. This inquisitive and energetic brother and sister duo delight in discovering all the exotic animals at the zoo as they scoot around in their hover-chairs.
The WotWots is produced by Pukeko Pictures and made at Richard Taylor’s Weta Workshop. Pukeko Pictures is a new business partnership between Academy Award winner Richard Taylor, the co-founder and creative lead of Weta Workshop, and internationally acclaimed author, illustrator and children’s television creator/producer, Martin Baynton. Taylor and Baynton previously teamed up to create the highly acclaimed award winning children’s program, Jane and the Dragon.
Richard Taylor, co-founder of Weta Workshop, said “After a career of helping bring unique characters to the movie screen, such as the Lord of the Rings trilogy and King Kong, it is now very exciting for us to bring that same focus and challenge to creating endearing and unique characters to preschoolers. In collaboration with TVNZ we can’t wait to bring the WotWots to kids nationwide, and we are thrilled to host the worldwide launch of the WotWots right here in our own city of Wellington, New Zealand next month. We have a fantastic day at the Wellington Zoo planned where the WotWots will make their stage and screen debut.”
This innovative 52 x 10 minute series is fast becoming a global preschool brand with broadcast deals already secured for the United Kingdom, Australia, Finland and many more coming on board in 2009.
The WotWots are off to a flying start, with an exciting educational website www.abc.net.au/wotwots (active from March 9) and a range of beautiful toys, DVD’s and books launching later this year.
