Fearne Cotton Behind Sky Kids Drama As Channel Goes Linear British presenter Fearne Cotton is exec producing a Sky Kids drama as the channel launches ad-free on linear TV, moving in the opposite direction to older-skewing BBC kids rival CBBC, which will soon be online only.

The Sky Kids channel will roll out to Sky linear TV as a 24 hour channel in February with originals including the Cotton-exec produced My Friend Misty, following an animated character who sets out to build emotional resilience in kids.

Misty surprises a group of children in the show with magical visits, helping them to deal with their feelings both good and bad by providing a series of tips and practical exercises to support them in difficult situations.

Cotton has presented on CBBC, GMTV and CITV as well as the likes of Top of the Pops and Celebrity Juice. The show will be joined by new originals Ready, Eddie, GO!, which is led by an autistic character, and dinosaur show Dino Club.
