Richard Ayoade of Submarine, The IT Crowd, and The Mighty Boosh fame, will voice a part in Strange Hill High, a CBBC series that has been commissioned for 2013.
The series was created by Josh Weinstein, (Futurama, Simpsons) and is filmed using a new technique that includes, vinyl puppets, stop motion, cgi, and movie-style lighting and effects. Strange Hill High chronicles the mystery solving adventures of Doc Brown ( Ben “Doc” Brown), and his two best friends, Becky Butters, (Emma Kennedy), and Templeton (Richard Ayoade). New kid Doc, confident Becky, and nerdy Templeton, get to the bottom of the other-worldly happenings that take place at the school.
13 episodes have been commissioned for the first series, and additional episodes have been requested for season 2, before the first series has even premiered.
As per his usual, Richard Ayoade’s new project is current, interesting, and sure to gain the attention of viewer’s everywhere.
Look for Strange Hill High on CBBC this spring.
