    Disney Channel Shears Series From 'Wallace and Grommit' Team

    Shaun the Sheep is US bound

    Bristol-based Aardman Animations has scored a major new deal for its Shaun the Sheep property, with the Disney Channel snapping it up for US broadcast.



    The animated series, which last week won the Cristal Award for Best TV Production at the Annecy Animated Film festival, will premiere on the Disney Channel on Sunday July 8th in a prime time slot.
    Since its successful launch as the most viewed show at Mipcom 2006, the property has sold to primary broadcasters in 145 territories including Australia, New Zealand, Spain, Germany, India, France, Benelux, Japan and Latin America.
    "Shaun was always destined to be the star of his own show," said Miles Bullough, Aardman's head of broadcast and executive producer of the series. "The show has been hugely popular with broadcasters around the world and we're thrilled that Disney Channel will bring its enormous marketing expertise to his American debut."
