CBBC announce new sci-fi drama series

CBBC has ordered a children’s sci-fi drama about a robot’s attempts to be a regular teenager.

The 13 x 30-minute series called Eve, marks the first move into children’s drama for production company Leopardrama, which is owned by Argonon.

Eve was created by Tracey Beaker Returns writer Emma Reeves and Leopardrama’s David Chikwe, who worked on BBC series Missing.

It follows the adventures of Eve, a sentient female robot living with a family in suburbia while trying to make sense of human life as a teenager.

CBBC executive producer Sue Nott said: “Eve’s attempts to discover the essence of being human will resonate with every child trying to find their place in the world. With its heady mix of adventure, mystery and sheer fun, Eve is an exciting addition to the CBBC drama slate.”

Eve will be filmed in the summer of 2014. Further announcements, including cast, to follow.
