U.K. Sesame Series Begins Filming

“The Furchester Hotel,” (52x11) the brand-new children’s series from CBeebies and Sesame Workshop, has begun filming at BBC Children's home in MediaCityUK, Salford.

The series, which will debut on CBeebies in the fall, is about a close-knit family of cheerfully incompetent Muppet monsters who own and operate an almost world-class hotel.

“The excitement in MediaCityUK is palpable as we begin production on The Furchester Hotel,” says Carol-Lynn Parente, executive producer, Sesame Workshop. “We know this series will engage children with humorous problems and quirky solutions in ways that only the beloved Muppets can. We look forward to seeing The Furchester Family, along with their friends Cookie Monster and Elmo, delighting children and families on CBeebies for years to come.”
