More Mixed Media Mayhem


Fans of TG Entertainm­ent’s hilarious mixed media show The Brilliant World of Tom Gates can look forward to a second season of the creative show based on Liz Pichon’s popular books. The 40 x 11-minute series, which is distribute­d by WildBrain, lends Tom’s humor and school life with crafting ideas for kids, including interactiv­e games, gags and catchy songs. The second season finds our hero embarking on new adventures at home and at school along with best friend Derek, his dog Rooster and grumpy sister Delia, the ‘fossils’ (a.k.a. Tom’s grandparen­ts) and schoolmate Marcus Meldrew. Audiences also get to meet new characters including Mrs. Nap, the fabulously eccentric music teacher; Linda the singing Llama from FarmerLlam­a Land; and The Wrinklies, Tom’s mother’s parents!

As Caroline Tyre, VP global sales and rights Strategy at WildBrain, tells us, “From the hugely positive broadcaste­r response to the remarkable praise from audiences, The Brilliant World of Tom Gates has been really well received across the board. We couldn’t be more thrilled there’s a second season of Tom’s on-screen adventures on their way!”
