New Wallace & Gromit episode

Posted in ABC1 at 4:14 pm by Give Me The Remote

Nick Park, creator of the very clever Wallace & Gromit duo has stated that there will be a new Wallace & Gromit television episode (really sort of a half-hour film). He announced via the Wallace & Gromit video blog that he has finished writing the new episode with Bob Baker.

The new episode, titled ‘Trouble at’ Mill’ will be the first Wallace & Gromit short since their Oscar winning ‘A Close Shave’ was first broadcast in 1995.

Park has revealed that in this new episode, Wallace and Gromit now own a home delivery bakery service called Top Bun. Their house will have a windmill on the roof and there will be contraptions aplenty to grind the corn and bake the dough.

Gromit will be the main one working the bakery as Wallace takes more of an interest in his new love ‘Piella Bakewell,’ whom he meets whilst delivering bread one day.

Trouble at’ Mill will be the fourth Wallace and Gromit short film, following A Grand Day Out (1989), The Wrong Trousers (1993) and A Close Shave (1995). The pair have also starred in the feature length Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit and there was a spin-off childrens series based on Shaun the Sheep (from A Close Shave).

Trouble at’ Mill is expected to be screened last 2008 in the UK – so we will hopefully see it on the ABC sometime not too soon after that!
