[via press release from CBS]

"CREATURE COMFORTS," THE AMERICAN VERSION OF THE HIT BRITISH TELEVISION SERIES, WILL PREMIERE MONDAY, JUNE 4 ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK

The Team That Produced "Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit" Will Bring Their Unique Stop-Motion Animation Magic To American Primetime Television

CREATURE COMFORTS, the American version of the hit British television series will premiere Monday, June 4 (8:00-8:30 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Based on the original Academy Award-winning short film of the same name created by Nick Park and Aardman Animations, Ltd., the half hour stop-motion animated series employs a unique format that culls excerpts from real person interviews and places them in the mouths of a wide variety of animated animals to produce humorous, charming and insightful commentaries on everyday life.

In upcoming episodes, interviews with hundreds of ordinary Americans from across the United States cover a variety of subjects, such as the trials and tribulations of doctor's visits and being sick, what animal magnetism is and what they look for in a mate, as well as the truth about lies and what it takes to keep a secret. Told through the mouths of animated animals, insects and other un-human species, they reveal their thoughts in a new and distinct way: an older married couple listing their ailments as portrayed by two lovebirds, the couple who talk about their great height difference as portrayed by two dachshunds, and two men who seem to be examining the bouquet of a fine wine as portrayed by two dogs sniffing, well, another dog.

Before "Creature Comforts" became "appointment television" on Sunday nights on the U.K.'s ITV1 network, the characters appeared in a series of enormously successful commercials. Recently, "Creature Comforts" was awarded the prestigious Rose d'Or for Best Comedy and Cristal Award for Best TV Production at the Annecy Animation Festival as well as the Audience Award at the New York International Children's Film Festival. A full list of "Creature Comforts" awards can be found at www.aardman.com/html/awards.asp.

Aardman Animations also produced the critically acclaimed box office hit film "Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of The Were-Rabbit" as well as the 2000 theatrical release "Chicken Run," one of the most successful U.K. feature films ever released.

Executive Producers for CREATURE COMFORTS are Kit Boss, Miles Bullough, The Gotham Group's Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, and Aardman's Nick Park, David Sproxton and Peter Lord. Richard Goleszowski, the U.K. director of "Creature Comforts," is supervising director of the American version. The show is produced by Aardman Animations, Ltd.
