Aardman International has revealed a new half-hour made for TV special featuring Wallace & Gromit.

Currently in pre-production, Trouble At' Mill will be shown on BBC1 next year, with shooting starting in January with delivery expected for autumn/Christmas 2008. All production will take place at the Aardman studios in Bristol.

Aardman will be taking the film to Mipcom next week and will be looking for broadcast pre-sales.

"We are thrilled to be able to offer Trouble At' Mill to international buyers at Mipcom," said Miles Bullough, head of broadcast and development at Aardman. "We have strong broadcast partners around the world and we are hopeful that they snap up Wallace & Gromit's latest adventure."

The film was unveiled by Nick Park in an interview style short film, available only on the internet. It can be viewed by following this link

In Trouble At' Mill, the two characters have a new business, with 62 West Wallaby Street now a granary with ovens and robotic kneading arms. Huge mixing bowls are all over the place and everything is covered with a layer of flour, while on the roof is a 'Wallace patent-pending' old fashioned windmill.

However, Gromit is concerned that 12 local bakers have 'disappeared' this year. But Wallace is distracted by local beauty and bread enthusiast Piella Bakewell. 


Wallace and Gromit

It may be 20 years in 2009 since Wallace & Gromit first appeared on our TV screens with A Grand Day Out, but the phenomenal success of the latest half hour over Christmas has underlined the fact that the fan base for the brand is stronger than ever.
