‘Shane the Chef’ gets the Greenlight
An animated preschool series about a chef and his daughter has been given the go-ahead for 52 11-minute episodes. Coming from UK-based producer and rights management company Hoho Entertainment, Cloth Cat Animation, based in Cardiff, will be producing the episodes, which are expected to be delivered this autumn.
Channel 5’s Milkshake! will air the series, which Hoho says has gained “significant interest from international broadcasters”, while Creative Europe is supplying additional funding and the Children’s Food Trust is lending support. A full series was commissioned by Milkshake! in 2015.
Based around an energetic chef and his daughter, the series follows their culinary ambitions and adventures.
Industry advised Hoho Entertainment on the Channel 5 deal and on the co-production deal with Cloth Cat Animation.
