The 20 x half hour series from activeTV sees them set off on a global tour to find “the world’s ultimate wacky sport” competing against the world’s best and each other.
“We are proud to deliver up a highly entertaining series which will take viewers to places they’ve never seen while uncovering zany competitions they never dreamed of,” said Executive Producer Amanda Peppard, “equally we’re really excited to showcase much-loved children’s host Amberley Lobo in some very wacky situations alongside newcomer William Gill who has to be one of the funniest young guys you’ll see on children’s TV.”
The factual series is likely to be one of the most ambitious taken on by an Australian kid’s television production company with filming taking place in ten countries across Europe and Asia as well as multiple interior locations. It’s this diversity of backdrops, people and cultures that’s sure to excite young viewers as they are taken on a frenetic, action-packed, super sporty and very funny tour of all things wacky.
World Wacky Beaters is produced with the assistance of Film Victoria and will be distributed by the Australian Children’s Television Foundation.
5.50pm Sunday on ABC3.
