Lloyd of the Flies

52 x 11' - CGI / Series / Comedy - 2022

Lloyd of the Flies is a brand-new comedy series for 7-11 year olds, that premiered on CITV in September 2022. It’s the first CGI series Aardman will produce entirely from its creative hub at its headquarters in Bristol.

The series follows the adventures of Lloyd B Fly, a housefly and the middle child of 451. Lloyd lives with his parents, his little sister PB and their 224 maggot siblings inside a compost bin they call home. In the series, Lloyd and PB are usually accompanied by Lloyd’s best friend, Abacus Woodlouse, and eccentric tag-along, Cornea Butterfly. Together they explore the strange world beyond the compost bin, where there is no shortage of lessons for Lloyd to very nearly learn.

Lloyd of the Flies is created and directed by Matthew Walker. He is joined by Co-director and Voice Director Jane Davies. The voice cast is led by Tom Rosenthal (Friday Night Dinner, Plebs) as Lloyd. Lloyd’s best friend Abacus will be voiced by Alex Lawther (The End of the F***ing WorldBlack Mirror), while Lauren Patel (Everybody’s Talking About Jamie) will take on the role of PB.

The series is a flagship project for the government-funded Young Audience Content Fund (YACF) which is managed by the BFI.
