Temple Street Productions Sells Hottest New Kids Show to CBBC

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 26, 2010) - Temple Street Productions is pleased to announce the sale of Wingin' It to CBBC in the UK, one of the most-loved channels for children. This live-action comedy series follows teenage odd couple, Porter (Demetrius Joyette, The Latest Buzz) an Angel-in-training and Carl (Dylan Everett, Booky's Crush), a disaster-prone young teen. Porter's earthly task is to make Carl into the most popular kid in school.

"CBBC is a perfect fit for Wingin' It," said Temple Street Co-Presidents, David Fortier and Ivan Schneeberg. "We are very proud of the show and working with CBBC offers us the opportunity to showcase Wingin' It on an international platform."

Angel-In-Training, Porter, possesses a devil-may-care attitude and has been sent to earth to get his angel wings. Fifteen year old, Carl, can't seem to catch a break – wherever he goes, disaster follows. That's right, dogs truly do eat his homework, he does get pummeled at sports and he can't seem to enter a store without setting off security alarms. In order for Porter to get his angel wings he has been tasked with making Carl the most popular kid in school. The problem is Carl doesn't want the help and is happy to figure things out on his own.

"CBBC are delighted to be able to show this magical new comedy drama," said CBBC Controller, Damian Kavanagh. "We hope our audience will love it as much as we do."

Wingin' It is produced by Temple Street Productions. The series was created by Frank van Keeken (The Kids in the Hall, Billable Hours) and is executive produced by Frank van Keeken, Ivan Schneeberg and David Fortier (Being Erica, Billable Hours, Darcy's Wild Life).

Wingin' It currently airs on Saturdays and Sundays at 6:50 p.m on Family Channel.
