ABC Australia is the most recent broadcaster to sign on for Aardman Animations’ new series Wallace & Gromit Present A World of Invention.
The broadcaster has pre-bought all six 29-minute episodes of the series, which is a live action look at various contraptions and inventions, with the animated duo playing host.
The series is set to begin broadcasting in late 2010, with Aardman looking to secure more international deals at this week’s MIPCOM conference in Cannes, France.
‘With several award-winning films and television series to their name, it is exciting to be taking Wallace and Gromit into a new genre and we are delighted that ABC has made a further commitment to our programming,’ says Alix Wiseman, Aardman’s head of sales. ‘We are confident that Wallace & Gromit present A World of Invention has great international potential and will appeal to family audiences worldwide.’
