Belfast's Sixteen South Nominated Twice for 'Pajanimals' at Last Week's Awards in New York
20 Jun 2013 : By Kevin Cronin
Sixteen South nominated for two Emmys for 'Pajanimals'.
Sixteen South - the Belfast children’s television production company - featured strongly at last week’s Daytime Entertainment Emmy awards in New York, with two nominations in the categories of ‘Outstanding Pre-School Children’s Series’ and ‘Outstanding Directing in a Children’s Series’.

In doing so, the company made history as the first Northern Ireland producer to be nominated for two Emmy awards - only to be beaten on the night by ‘Sesame Street’.

Sixteen South was founded by Colin Williams, with Pajanimals aimed at 2-3 year olds as a musical bedtime show featuring cuddly characters named Sweetpea Sue, Squacky, CowBella and Apollo.

The company has partnered with the Sesame Workshop, the Jim Henson Company and the BBC, with Mr Williams acting as both executive producer and creative director in overseeing the production and development teams.

Jim Henson Company CEO Lisa Henson and executive vice President of children’s entertainment Halle Stanford are executive producers for the series, along with long-time Henson producer Alex Rockwell (‘Bear in the Big Blue House’) and Jeff Muncy.

Sixteen South produces the series for The Jim Henson Company for the US 24 hour channel Sprout, part of the NBC network.

Further information on Sixteen South’s line-up of children’s television programmes can be found on their website here.
