The Sarah Jane Adventures Returns To CBBC
New dramas which will hit the channel will include, Half Moon Investigations about crime, corruption and general wrong doing in the school playground; We Are Family (working title), following the colourful and heart-warming comedic adventures of a singing family who are a talk show’s resident pop group; Roy, the story of an extraordinary cartoon boy marooned in the real world; and Paradise Café, a beachside mystery with a supernatural twist.
Anne Gilchrist, the Controller of CBBC stated: “Drama is at the heart of CBBC and we are very excited about these new and returning commissions. As well as the titles we’re announcing today, we are also developing an exciting drama based in the north-east of England for 2009/10 and a project from Lime Pictures with writer Jeanette Winterson. The dramas will be from across the UK, and I am extremely proud of such a strong line-up.”
