A new television series about an extended family of "all-singing, all-dancing, multi-racial sheep" is being produced.
Welsh language channel S4C and Cynhyrchiadau Ceidiog Creations will team up with the children's station of the Arabic language broadcaster Al Jazeera to produce a high-definition second series of Baaas.
The three companies will produce a new 52x15-minute series of the pre-school show after the first series was sold to Al Jazeera in 2006.
Baaas is expected to be shown
under the title of Meees in Welsh on S4C in the autumn and in Arabic in early 2009, when the Qatar-based Al Jazeera launches its own children's channel.
