VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ – Big Bad Boo Studios announced today the start of production on a new animated preschool mini-series entitled Lili and Lola.

The show follows the adventures of two sisters Lili and Lola who live in a small apartment in a big city. Along with Mama, Papa and their lazy cat, Kensington, they love to giggle, laugh and just be silly. Situated on a quiet little street, their building is filled with interesting people from all over. The show celebrates cultural diversity by showcasing holidays like the Chinese New Year, Norooz and Diwali, introducing cultural nuances to a young audience.

Producing five 7-minute episodes and a series of apps and games to support a literacy curriculum, Big Bad Boo will launch the project in Persian, English and French in 2015. Partially funded by the Canada Media Fund in the Diverse Language Category, the show is the first Persian show to secure funding in that category.

Shabnam Rezaei, the creator of the show says: "We are so excited about Lili and Lola. Not only is this a beautiful show, but we think audiences worldwide are going to love the comedy and every day stories they will experience with Lili, Lola and their neighbors."

Comedian Maz Jobrani has already been cast in the role of Papa and the main title song will feature the talented Rana Mansour. The show will be broadcast in Persian on TenTV and Shaw's Multicultural Persian channel, reaching a national audience of Persian speakers in Canada. Big Bad Boo has plans to launch the other languages exclusively on the multilingual VOD platform Oznoz.

Lili and Lola will be the fourth original program coming from Big Bad Boo Studios. The company has produced shows like Mixed Nutz and 1001 Nights, which air in over 80 countries including broadcasters such as Teletoon, Disney, CBC, Al Jazeera Children's Channel, Discovery Kids, PBS and Globo TV.
