Aardman’s ‘Lloyd of the Flies’ Premieres on CITV

Watch a trailer for the quirky new animated comedy adventure that follows Lloyd B Fly, a housefly and middle child living at home with his family of 451.

Aardman has dropped a trailer for its quirky new animated comedy that follows the adventures of Lloyd B Fly, a housefly and middle child living at home (of course, in a compost bin they call home!) with his family, including his 224 maggot siblings. The animated comedy adventure is now showing on CITV.

In the series, Lloyd, the middle child of 451, is a young fly with lots to prove. With his best friend Abacus Woodlouse, his little sister PB, and eccentric tagalong Cornea Butterfly at his side, Lloyd is all set for misadventure in a family comedy of entomology. The series draws inspiration from the weird, wonderful, and bizarre world of insects and shines a light on what they get up to when we’re not paying attention.

The voice cast includes Tom Rosenthal (Friday Night Dinner); Alex Lawther (The End of the F***ing World, Black Mirror), and Lauren Patel (Everybody’s Talking About Jamie). Callum Scott Howells (It’s A Sin) is in the role of Lloyd’s nemesis, Berry, and Derry Girls star Jamie-Lee O’Donnell, plays Yard, the bumble bee who regularly frequents the local Pancake Diner.

Lloyd of the Flies is created and directed by Matthew Walker. He is joined by co-director and voice director Jane Davies. The series covers key themes of family and friendship, with comedy and misadventure around every corner.Lloyd of the Flies is the first “in-house” CGI series that Aardman has produced entirely from its creative hub at its headquarters in Bristol.

The production was supported by the BFI-managed Young Audiences Content Fund (YACF), which supports the creation of distinctive, quality content for young audiences, and is intended for providing content that informs our understanding of the world, stimulates knowledge and learning, as well as representing diversity and alternative viewpoints. Lloyd of the Flies introduces families to the weird and wonderful world of insects in a way that is both informative and entertaining for all audiences.

Check out the trailer, then check out the series on CITV for a dose of Aardman’s endearing signature humor:
