King Banana is a UK independent production company, specialising in children’s content. We make successful, audience-lead, high quality entertainment for global broadcasters.

King Banana was founded by Katie Simmons and Lotte Elwell who between them have over 25 years experience of professional children’s media. We are passionate about creating content that enriches children’s lives through pushing creative boundaries. We aim to empower children through content that inspires curiosity, delights and surprises.

The team is currently working on series 6&7 of ‘Yakka Dee’ for CBeebies. The show is mixed media and encourages children to talk.

King Banana is also working closely with Boom Cymru to produce a new live action show for Channel 5, ‘Meet The Experts’.
