A live action show based on a Kenilworth author’s children’s book series is set to be broadcast on TV.

Janet Roberts, author of the ‘Chico Chugg’ series based on her pet Jack Russell, Chico, is also the show’s creative director, which has the same name as her books.

The show is based around Chico’s adventures from his point of view, and also incorporates educational elements.

Janet said: “I was keen to make sure we have strong educational values in the series as well as making it fun.”

The show will be broadcast on Welsh-language channel S4C on Easter Monday, and English language versions can already be viewed on YouTube.
