Mr. Men Little Miss

Do you remember author Roger Hargreaves’ book series where the title character had one personality trait? There was even an adorable line of Doctor Who versions by Hargreaves’ son Adam. Well, Deadline reports it’s being adapted for TV by Endeavor Content and current license holder Sanrio. Tamara Rothenberg, Endeavor SVP, Family Young Adult and Kids, said: “We are thrilled to take the next step with our partner Sanrio and the Mr. Men Little Miss brands to help today’s children learn about their feelings, help empower them as they navigate the process of growing up, and to make them laugh along the way.” The book series is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.
