Brown Bag Films have begun production on ‘Doc McStuffins’, a new animated series for preschoolers that will premiere on the newly branded Disney Junior channels.

The series follows six-year-old Dottie "Doc" McStuffins, who communicates with and heals stuffed animals and toys out of her backyard clinic. With an emphasis on healthy living, the series will highlight the importance of taking care of oneself and others.

Brown Bag Films are producing the series in association with Disney Channel with an early 2011 date currently scheduled for the series to air. The announcement was made yesterday by Nancy Kanter, senior vice president, Playhouse Disney Worldwide. The 52 episode series will be directed by Norton Virgien whose credits include the ‘Rugrats’ series and movie.

Emmy Award-winning writer Chris Nee (Little Bill) is creator and executive producer and Emmy Award-winning Norton Virgien (Rugrats) is director. Gillian Higgins (Wobblyland) and Theresa Mayer are producing for Brown Bag Films. The Dublin company, which employs 50 staff, is now looking to expand its team further with 14 positions opening up as a result of ‘Doc McStuffins’.

Disney’s Kanter said: "Helping their kids live a healthy lifestyle is a top priority for parents. 'Doc McStuffins' combines every kid's dream of their toys coming to life with valuable lessons about health and wellness. We are confident that Doc's relatable warmth and charm will ease young viewers' natural trepidations about familiar situations including visiting the doctor, getting shots and taking medicine."

‘Doc McStuffins’ is a production of the Brown Bag Films in association with Disney Channel. More information is available on brownblogfilms.com
