'Magic Roundabout' returns to UK screens

Nick Jr. has picked up the rights to a remake of the classic children's TV show The Magic Roundabout.

Ermintrude and Zebedee will reappear on UK television screens in 52 episodes of computer generated animation. Each episode will run for 11 minutes and will be produced by Films Action of Paris and Silver Fox Films of London.

"The original Magic Roundabout TV series was a charming cultural phenomenon which entertained generations of children," Nickelodeon UK managing director Howard Litton told Broadcast. "The beautiful CGI animated adventures are sure to be a big hit with today's discerning young viewers."

No transmission dates are available at present but the new series has been officially unveiled at MipTV.
