Angelina Jolie is set to become executive producer of BBC children's show

Is there nothing Angelina Jolie can't do?

The actress, activist and mother of six has plans to become the executive producer of a new BBC show aimed at children.

Jolie has joined the staff at an upcoming BBC current affairs show Our World which promotes global media literacy among children aged 7-12.

The Maleficent star will executive produce 10 episodes of the BBC current affairs show for children set to land in 2019.

Jolie has helped to raise awareness of various causes, including conservation, education, and women's rights, so taking part in this project seems like a natural step in the 43-year-olds career.

The actress is well known for her humanitarian work, particularly with children and three of her six children are adopted.

According to The Hollywood Reporter when speaking about the new show Jolie said;

"As a mother, I am very pleased that the BBC World Service is taking this step. It is also important to me that the project is global, and will help young people in different countries to be connected to each other and to have greater awareness and understanding of the news on an international basis."

Our World will be a multimedia project with digital and broadcast elements, including a weekly half-hour TV show.

The BBC plans to launch a 10-week trial of the project later this year.
