Oscar-winning claymation stars Wallace & Gromit are returning to their first love – television – with a new half-hour adventure.

Trouble at ‘Mill will be their first television show since their 1995 classic A Close Shave. They’ve since been feted in Hollywood and experienced global success, crowned last year with the Oscar for best animated feature for The Curse of the Were-Rabbit.

The BBC reports that Trouble at’ Mill is a murder-mystery in which Wallace and Gromit run a bakery business. It also introduces a new love interest for Wallace, bread-loving Piella Bakewell.

Aardman Animations boss Nick Park says: “The story takes Wallace and Gromit in a direction we haven’t seen before, both emotionally and technically.”

Park is looking forward to returning to the shorter format after making Chicken Run and Were-Rabbit back to back. Both took five years to create.

Trouble at’ Mill will take about seven months to create and will be shown on the BBC.
