UP NEXT 2024: Mel B set to narrate her first TV show

UP NEXT 2024: Mel B set to narrate her first TV show, as Sky Kids announces two new Sky Originals coming to the channel later this year



Sky Kids unveils two new animated Sky Original series coming to the channel later this year, both bursting with colour and cheer.

Narrated by Mel B, Happy Town follows the problem-solving adventures of an adorable hedgehog and ladybird best friend duo, Pep and Tabitha, in a charming and unique community. The brightness of the light in Happy Town depends on the townsfolks glee, so each time it starts to fizz out, the duo set out on a mission to make the sign shine bright again by helping others and encouraging everyone to help each other too.

Mel B said: “This is a huge moment for me to be the voice of Happy Town for Sky Kids - my first time ever as a narrator. I’ve actually spent years looking for the perfect children's show to get involved with because I’m a mum of three and I strongly believe that little ones learn so much through brilliant, colourful, creative storytelling. Happy Town is all about kindness and community and a cute ladybird and hedgehog duo who make it their mission to help people. I’m totally in love with this gorgeous Sky Kids show. At its heart is fun, adventure and great entertainment - just like me really!"

Also joining the Sky Kids slate is fast-paced animated comedy series Let’s Go, Bananas! created and written by Tim Bain (Bluey, PJ Masks), focussing on a community of three sweet and silly neighbouring animal families who share each other's triumphs, dramas and completely bananas lives. The show is a feel-good celebration of different family structures, and all the wonderful chaos, joy and messy moments which will be recognised and loved by young viewers and their own families.

Lucy Murphy, Director of Sky Kids, said: “Full of positivity and encouraging creative thinking, Happy Town is a burst of colour and joy which is completely encapsulated in the brilliant Mel B’s warm and engaging narration. And we’re delighted to be working with Tim Bain on the hilarious Let’s Go Bananas which shows kids that family is what you make it”.

Sky Kids offers endless opportunities to keep kids inspired and entertained; with thousands of hours of Sky Original content available on the ad-free Sky Kids linear channel, and on demand, as well as the best of the US on partner channels such as Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon.

The titles announced today are just some of a raft of new original and exclusive titles coming UP NEXT on Sky in 2024. Powerful stories centred around incredible characters that get the nation talking; you won’t want to miss this incredible line up on Sky this year.
