CANNES: CBBC has picked up the rights to air 26 half-hour episodes of Prank Patrol Australia from MarVista Entertainment, following the success of its own version of the kids’ format.

Season one of the show is currently airing on ABC 3 and ABC 1 in Australia. It is based on the Canadian series from Apartment 11 Productions that airs on YTV. The show was also adapted in the U.K. by Bakermedia, with 40 episodes produced.

Prank Patrol Australia has demonstrated its ability to be a ratings winner, so much so that a second season has already been commissioned,” said Vanessa Goglio, senior VP of worldwide sales at MarVista Entertainment. “We are excited that young audiences in the U.K. will be able to watch this fun and adventurous Australian version of the series.”

Sarah Muller, head of acquisitions and drama development at CBBC, added, “The energy and fast pace of Prank Patrol Australia makes it perfect for the CBBC audience. It fits flawlessly with our objective to provide cool, fun, must-see content and I am confident that it will soon become a firm favourite.”
