Those of you that miss seeing Jamie Oliver (aka The Naked Chef) on a regular basis, will be happy to know that he's signed on to do another show. Only this time, instead of appearing in the flesh, he'll appear as a cartoon version of his 10-year-old self.
In a joint effort between his production company Fresh One Productions and Wallace and Gromit creators Aardman Animations, Jamie will appear as a cartoon aimed towards seven to eleven-year-olds. The series will feature Jamie on a quest to becoming a truly great chef. Along the way he'll interact with a world filled with talking food and other unusual characters such as Eggs Benedict — a mad scientist, obviously.
"I can't tell you how passionate I am about kids and food," said Oliver.
"I really want to pass on a little knowledge in a fun way, to really connect to the younger kids, so teaming up with the incredible Aardman Animations to produce Little J was an absolute must."
As of now, the 52-part series does not have a broadcaster, but I have a feeling we'll see it soon enough.
