Wish Films was formed by the team behind Tell-Tale productions – Will Brenton and Helen Cadwallader, joined by their head of production, Will Jordan.
Whilst running Tell-Tale they created and produced some of the most popular UK children’s television including ‘The Tweenies’ (BBC – 390 episodes – the BBC’s biggest ever commission), ‘Boo!’ (BBC – 104 episodes), ‘BB3B!’ (BBC – 13 episodes) and ‘The Fun Song Factory’ (GMTV/CITV – 72 episodes)
Wish Films’ first commission was the production of ‘Jim Jam and Sunny’, CITV’s biggest ever commission at 260 x 11 minute live action episodes. This was quickly followed by commissions for ‘Wibbly Pig’ (BBC), ‘Mighty-Mites’ (BBC) and ‘Florries Dragons’ (Disney) and most recently ‘Melody’ (BBC) running to three series for CBeebies. Currently they have a raft of projects under development with broadcasters and available for discussion.
Over the years the Wish Team have been rewarded with a BAFTA, six BAFTA nominations, an RTS award, along with nominations at the British Animation Awards, the Broadcast Awards and winning another 14 awards in total.
Wish Films prides itself in producing high quality original ideas and adaptations and welcomes the opportunities to collaborate with like-minded people across the world to produce the very best programming we can for our young audience.
