Fresh deals served up for Shane the Chef thumbnail

Hoho Rights, the commercial arm of production firm Hoho Entertainment, has secured a smorgasbord of TV sales for its foodie pre-school series Shane the Chef.

Almost a year since it launched on Channel 5’s Milkshake! last April, the new deals will see Shane the Chef on the menu of Celtic broadcasters RTE, BBC Alba and S4C. Shane has also been picked up by YLE, Finland’s national public broadcaster.


The 52 x 11’ animated show follows the culinary adventures of ambitious and energetic chef Shane and his young daughter Izzy. Every day is a recipe for adventure in the charming seaside town of Munchington as Shane demonstrates his passion for food.

Helen Howells, Joint Managing Director at Hoho Entertainment, says: "We’re delighted that the recipe for Shane the Chef has proved to be so popular and that he’s now going to be sharing his enthusiasm for fresh food and healthy eating with even more young children and their families.”
