Channel 5 has announced the commission of a new CG animated series, Shane the Chef, for Milkshake.

Set to air in spring 2017, the new series will be produced by children’s production and rights company, Hoho Entertainment.

Each episode focuses chef Shane and his daughter Izzy, who run a restaurant in the town Munchington, following their adventures whether it's trying to build the biggest baguette for the world record, finding wild herbs in the woods or growing large vegetables for the village county fair.

“As home to some of the world’s favourite pre-school characters, Milkshake is the perfect place for such a lovable and engaging new personality,” commented Jessica Symons, head of children’s at Channel 5. “The show's unique premise and its key ingredients of entertainment and learning make for a sure-fire recipe for success. Cookery and food programmes have never been more popular on TV and Shane is the chef that pre-schoolers can call their own."

Oliver Ellis, Joint Managing Director at HoHo Entertainment added: "Children are just beginning to discover a real interest in what they eat at this age and can learn about all aspects of their food while having fun with Shane and Izzy. Because Shane's a chef, the series naturally has food at its core and, therefore, encourages greater food knowledge and promotes healthy eating with the audience."
