HoHo Rights lines up platter of Celtic and Nordic broadcasters for Shane the Chef

HoHo Rights – the commercial arm of the kids’ production company, HoHo Entertainment – has lined up a veritable Smörgåsbord of TV sales for its food-based pre-school series, Shane the Chef, spanning Celtic and Nordic broadcasters.

It’s been almost a year since Shane the Chef launched on Channel 5’s Milkshake last April, and to mark the occasion, the series has just signed its newest slate of broadcasters. The new deals will now see Shane the Chef on the menu of Celtic broadcaster RTE, BBC Alba and S4C.

The series has also been picked up by YLE, Finland’s national public broadcaster.

The 52 x 11’ animated series follows the foody adventures of the ambitious chef Shane and his young daughter Izzy, for whom everyday presents a recipe for adventure in the seaside town of Munchington, where Shane demonstrates his passion for food.

Helen Howells, joint managing director at Hoho Entertainment, said: “We’re delighted that the recipe for Shane the Chef has proved to be so popular and that he’s now going to be sharing his enthusiasm for fresh food and healthy eating with even more young children and their families.”

Created by Andrew Wildman and Simon Jowett, Shane the Chef is entirely produced in the UK by Hoho Entertainment and animated by Cloth Cat Animation in Cardiff.
