Darrall Macqueen, the London-based BAFTA Award-winning producer of hit series “Topsy & Tim” and “Teletubbies,” has unveiled the official teaser for Apple TV+‘s upcoming animated hybrid kids and family series “Lovely Little Farm,” which will premiere globally on June 10, 2022.
“Lovely Little Farm” follows sisters Jill and Jacky as they care for and cherish the animals on their lavender-growing farm. Being a young farmer isn’t easy, but each day provides new challenges and opportunities for these sisters. To bring the series to life, the live-action animation hybrid leverages the latest computer-generated technologies in collaboration with Industrial Light & Magic.
Apple TV+ collaborated on “Lovely Little Farm” with changemaker Dr. Gail Melson, a pioneer in the field of human-animal connection and former professor emerita at Purdue University’s Human Development & Family Studies department. Based on her studies on children’s relationships with animals, nature, and developing technologies, Dr. Melson worked with the executive producers to create the show.
“Lovely Little Farm” is created by BAFTA Award winners Maddy Darrall (“Teletubbies,” “Topsy & Tim,” “Waffle the Wonder Dog”) and Billy Macqueen (“Teletubbies,” “Topsy & Tim,” “Waffle the Wonder Dog”), along with Catherine Williams (“Teletubbies,” “Topsy & Tim,” “Waffle the Wonder Dog”). Darrall and Macqueen serve as executive producers alongside Tony Cooke (“PJ Masks,” “Waffle the Wonder Dog,” “Hunter Street”), who is also head writer. The lead director is two-time Director’s Guild Award winner Jack Jameson (“When You Wish Upon A Pickle,” “Waffle the Wonder Dog”). Newcomer Levi Howden stars as Jill, with Kassidi Roberts joining as Jacky, and the series also features the voice talents of BAFTA Award nominee Shirley Henderson (“Harry Potter” franchise, “Stan & Ollie”) as Quackety Duck Duck, Dominique Moore (“Thomas & Friends”) as Pickle Pony, SAG Award nominee Joel Fry (“Cruella,” “Paddington 2”) as Al Alpaca, and Canan Yildiz-Husbands as Bif & Bop.
