A little piglet named Olivia will come to life on screen for children across the world as Dublin-based animation studio Brown Bag Films has completed a 52-part CGI-animated cartoon series for kids’ TV channel Nickelodeon.

Olivia the Piglet will be seen on over 20 major broadcasters’ channels around the globe, beginning with its current US week-day airing.

The CGI-animated series, which is based on the best-selling book series of the same name, is in high-definition and has a quality writing team including Pat Resnick of 9 To 5, Straight Talk and Maxiefame.

While being animated here in Dublin, the series is also directed by Brown Bag Films’ co-founder Darragh O’Connell.

“It was such a fantastic challenge to bring such a beautiful series of books to the screen, Olivia is such a great character and I think we managed to keep her personality true to that wonderfully, sassy little girl,” said O’Connell.

Brown Bag Films currently employs 50 full-time staff and produces commercials as well as international TV series. The firm is currently working on the CGI series Noddy in Toyland – Enid Blyton’s much-loved creation.
