Fun Kids, the UK’s children’s radio station has taken a second series of Suzie Pugh and a Monster Too from Made in Manchester.
The 10 minute episodes which star former Coronation Street and Emmerdale actress Vicky Binns in the lead role, have proved popular on the children’s radio station which broadcasts in London on DAB and across the UK online.
The audio adventure series centres around Suzie Pugh and Smert, her colour changing alien monster friend who lives in her garden shed.
Written and created by Phil Collinge, the episodes are produced by Iain Mackness. They star Vicky Binns as Suzie Pugh and character actor Steve Murphy (Life on Mars/Shameless) as Smert.
MIM Creative Director Ashley Byrne and Executive Producer says: “We’re delighted to be able to bring a new series of Suzie Pugh episodes to Fun Kids. Suzie is enjoying being part of a station which already has such a great selection of characters.
He adds: “It’s fabulous to work with a team who believe passionately in the ability of audio to engage, excite and educate younger audiences.”
Fun Kids Station Manager Matt Deegan says “Suzie Pugh was a real hit with the audience at Fun Kids so we are really pleased to be working with the brilliant team at Made in Manchester to bring it back for a second series.”
