Tim Winton's Lockie Leonard

Worldscreen.com is reporting that Jetix U.K. has acquired broadcast rights to the "Australian show 'Lockie Leonard', produced by Essential Viewing. It will premiere on Jetix U.K. on April 14 and follows the adventures of quick-witted surf-rat Lockie as he battles life as a 12-and-three-quarters-year-old. Based on the award-winning novels by Booker Prize nominated author Tim Winton, 'Lockie Leonard' offers viewers a roller-coaster ride of friends, family and a truly mixed up yet very normal life."

From Wikipedia: "Jetix is a children's television programming brand owned by The Walt Disney Company broadcast in the United Kingdom and Ireland. It was previously known as Fox Kids." There is no word at this time as to when the series will be screened in Australia.
