C4 turns to Keo for daytime

UK broadcaster Channel 4 (C4) is returning to indie Keo Films for a new daytime food series with celebrity chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.

The as-yet unnamed 25×30′ show will air during C4’s daytime schedules in the autumn.

A new cookbook from Fearnley-Whittingstall titled Three Good Things will accompany the series, published by Bloomsbury. A spokesman for C4 said it was likely the series would take the same name as the book.

Keo has previously produced the successful Fish Fight series for C4 and the long-running River Cottage series of food programmes presented by Fearnley-Whittingstall, who is also a Keo director. More recently it made Hugh’s Three Hungry Boys for the network.

C4 announced at the launch of its annual report last week that it would screen a second season of Fish Fight in the coming year, this one taking a global perspective on the chef’s campaign for overhauling national fishing quotas.

In related news, C4 has also greenlit a new season of its online comedy showcase Comedy Blaps.

Eyeworks and Baby Cow are working on comedy projects for the C4 website and its feeds on YouTube and Vimeo with comedians Doctor Brown and Nick Helm.

The previous slate of Comedy Blaps drew two million viewers online and Irish comedy duo Rubberbandits secured a broadcast pilot on the back of their appearance.
