Dodo — Ricky Wilson narrates new comedy series on Sky Kids this June

Posted Filed under

New animated comedy series Dodo is set to air on Ski Kids on June 14

Narrated by Kaiser Chiefs frontman Wilson, the series follows Joe as he navigates the dramas and pitfalls of his first year at secondary school. With new situations and embarrassments around every corner, small events mean big drama for Joe, as he tries to fit in, make new friends, girlfriends and even loses his school trousers. But Joe has best friends Frisbo, Pete and Lily at his side, helping him realise that each challenge is really not the end of the world as he triumphs over adversity and survives another school day.

The series is based on multi-award-winning film and YouTube hit Not The End of the World, by British creator and series director Jack Bennett, which he made while still in his final year at university where he was discovered by Wildseed. In keeping with their mission to unearth new talent, Dodo is Jack’s first series for television but, according to Wildseed’s creative director Jesse Cleverly, “I’m sure it will be the first of many.”

Joe is voiced by Dylan Llewellyn (Derry Girls), comedian Mark Watson voices the character of Joe’s Dad and Connor Swindells (Sex Education) Joe’s older brother Jamie, with Ellie Kendrick (Game of Thrones, The Diary of Anne Frank), Kadiff Kirwan (Chewing Gum, Fleabag) and Frankie Fox (Small Axe, Blinded by the Light), voicing Joe’s friends Lily, Pete and Frisbo.
