CBeebies re-commissions 'The Furchester Hotel' series from Sesame Workshop

MUMBAI: CBeebies and Sesame Workshop will be bringing back The Furchester Hotel series once again as it has been re-commissioned for a 50x11 minute run, plus a double length Christmas special.

Joining the family and checking into the hotel will be special guests from Sesame Street, Big Bird, Count Von Count and the Martians.

The Furchester Hotel is a series for three - six year-olds set in the ?almost? world-class hotel run by a close-knit family of cheerfully chaotic monsters. As guests arrive at the hotel they are greeted by monster owner Funella Furchester, her loving husband, Furgus Fuzz, and their daughter, the unflappable Phoebe Furchester-Fuzz. The Furchesters are joined by Elmo, Phoebe?s cousin who is on an extended visit and Cookie Monster, who has landed his dream job as room service and dining room waiter. Completing the ensemble is Isabel, a furry bell monster - guests won?t get any attention until she dings to announce their arrival!

New episodes of The Furchester Hotel, which goes into production at MediaCityUk in May, will feature more music, more creative problem solving, and more physical comedy than ever. Expect slapstick, farce, doors opening and closing, revolving doors revolving, and lifts going up and down and back up again. With storylines including an Aquarium Suite for fish guests, a visit from Vidal Raccoon - famous fur cutter, and The Great Furchester Bake-off!

The Furchester Hotel has been commissioned by CBeebies controller Kay Benbow and is a co-production between CBeebies and Sesame Workshop.

Speaking about the series Benbow says, ?The partnership between CBeebies and Sesame Workshop is really special as we both share core values of producing fun, high quality, innovative programming for a younger audience that children love and parents trust. And I can?t wait to Welcome Big Bird to Salford!"

?We?re so excited that The Furchester Hotel will be welcoming new guests on CBeebies for seasons three and four. It?s a thrill to coproduce new entertaining and educational episodes of this furry and funny series that we know children around the world love,? adds Sesame Workshop SVP and GM international media business Maura Regan.

The Furchester Hotel is a co-production between CBeebies and Sesame Workshop. The second series of The Furchester Hotel will go into production in May for 14 weeks in the studio and will be transmitted on CBeebies later in the year.
