“Wallace and Gromit” are to return in a half-hour television adventure – their first since 1995’s “A Close Shave” reports The BBC.
Aardman Animations has announced that the cheese-loving inventor and his loyal dog will star in “Trouble at’ Mill” which will screen on BBC One in late 2008.
Trouble at’ Mill is a murder mystery that sees Wallace and Gromit running a bakery business – with their house converted into a granary with ovens and robotic kneading arms. It also introduces a new love interest for Wallace – bread enthusiast Piella Bakewell.
The 7-8 month shoot begins in January at Aardman studios in Bristol. The new film will reunite Nick Park with writer Bob Baker who co-wrote both “The Wrong Trousers” and “A Close Shave.”
