Sesame Workshop taps Guru Studio for Charlotte’s Web mini series

Guru Studios has officially started work on the retelling of the classic Charlotte’s Web, a family miniseries produced by Sesame Workshop for HBO Max.

The stylised 3D-rendered adaptation was announced earlier this year and will be available in 2024.

This is the second partnership between Sesame Workshop and Guru Studio. Guru is currently in production on Sesame Street’s Mecha Builders, the Sesame Street animated spin off which reimagines Elmo, Cookie Monster, and Abby Cadabby as robot superheroes-in-training.

“Having collaborated with Guru on an earlier series, we know them to be a leader in animated storytelling, captivating and inspiring kids and families around the world with their stunning visuals,” said Kay Wilson Stallings, evp, creative and production at Sesame Workshop. “We’re excited to start production on a faithful retelling of one of the most beloved children’s novels and address the important topics of life, friendship and selflessness.”

Frank Falcone, president and executive creative director at Guru Studio, added: “We’re thrilled to once again work with the incredible team at Sesame Workshop to help them create the definitive version of this classic and beloved story for a whole new audience.”
