The UK production company has been founded by ex-Impossible Kids staffers, Karl Woolley and Jon Doyle. Karl said: “This is an incredibly exciting development in Laughing Gravy’s plans. We’ve spent a lot of time developing our slate and our partnership with Hoho gives us access to the kind of distribution experience which will ensure it is right for the market. Like me and Jon, Oliver and Helen have been around for a while and together we’re confident we can stick around for a good while longer. We’re thrilled.”

Hoho Rights’ Oliver Ellis added: “Karl and Jon have invention and comedy running in their veins, something that always plays well to a kids’ audience. We’re delighted to be instrumental in bringing their diverse range of programming to market so that it can be enjoyed across as many platforms as possible.”

The first project arising from the strategic venture is already in pre-production and a commissioning announcement is expected shortly.
