Tubi Picks Up ‘Lloyd of the Flies’ from ‘Wallace & Gromit’ Studio

Tubi has acquired Aardman Animations’ series Lloyd of the Flies.

 

The series, originally for CITV in the UK, will be badged as a Tubi Original in the U.S. and Canada. It will launch exclusively on the free streaming service on August 6.

 

 

The 52-episode series follows Lloyd, a young fly who is the middle child of 451, who lives in an apple with his long-suffering parents, cheeky little sister and 224 maggots. Along with his best friend, woodlouse Abacus, he faces endless awkward, annoying and occasionally life-threatening situations largely of his own devising, because when you’re only one centimeter high, even tiny problems can lead to massive consequences.

 

Lloyd of the Flies comes from Aardman, the storied British animation producer behind the Wallace and GromitChicken Run and Shaun the Sheep franchises. It was the first CGI series Aardman has produced entirely from its creative hub at its headquarters in Bristol, though it is best known for its influential stop-motion productions. The company has traditionally sold its films and TV shows directly through its own sales arm.
