Tubi Acquires LLOYD OF THE FLIES Animated Series From WALLACE & GROMIT Creators

Tubi has acquired a new animated comedy series Lloyd of the Flies from Aardman Animations, the production company behind the classic Wallace & Gromit franchise.

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, his 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.”

The series stars Tom Rosenthal (Friday Night Dinner, Plebs) plays Lloyd, Alex Lawther (Alien series) plays Abacus, Lauren Patel (Everybody’s Talking About Jamie), Callum Scott Howells (It’s a Sin), and Teresa Gallagher (Thomas & Friends: Marvelous Machinery), alongside Ayesha Antoine (Blippi Wonders) and Rob Rackstraw (Octonauts & The Great Bar).

Lloyd of the Flies was created and directed by Matthew Walker, with Jane Davies co-director and voice director.

Producer Adam Lewinson said in a statement: “Aardman is a beloved animation studio famous for their unique voice that appeals to children and adults alike, and Lloyd of the Flies is yet another memorable story elevated by this cross-generational appeal. Lloyd of the Flies amplifies our commitment to Tubi Kids and our deep collection of iconic kids and family content that includes the likes of Scooby Doo, The Flintstones, The Smurfs and much more.”

Laura Taylor-Williams, Head of Digital & Strategic Development at Aardman added: “We are delighted to have partnered with Tubi for Aardman’s first CGI show, Lloyd of the Flies. Releasing as a Tubi Original in North America, Tubi is a great platform for our show’s irreverent humour and unique creative, we’re excited for this partnership and are confident both kids and adults alike will enjoy Lloyd of the Flies.”

The series will be tagged as a Tubi Original in the U.S. and Canada. It will launch exclusively on the free streaming service on August 6th.
