Sky 1 adapts Fungus the Bogeyman

Raymond Briggs’ classic family story, Fungus the Bogeyman . The series will be produced by the Andy Serkis founded Imaginarium Studios. The studio, know for its brand of Cyber-thespianism that made the characters of Rise of the Planet of the Apes seem so real, is creating another mix of the digital and physical to bring us a mix of the mundane and magical.

Fungus is a Bogyman going through an existential crisis. He feels there is no purpose to his day to day life of scaring humans. The book also was a sort of tourist guide to the world of the Bogymen, it being a gross parody of normal human life, so I imagine they will be having some fun with that concept.

Fungus plods onto our screens later this year.
