The Zoo (working title) will feature gorillas, penguins and giraffes from Paignton Zoo in southern England after they have been given human voices and computer-generated moving mouths.

DHX and the BBC’s natural history unit will collaborate on the series, which will begin airing next year, with DHX handling global distribution outside the UK.

Cheryl Taylor, controller of CBBC, said the series would aim to be both “fact-filled and fun-packed.”

Paignton Zoo executive director Simon Tonge added that he hoped the show would “blend animal science and conservation information” with comedy.
