A new JB Gill-fronted cookery show, Cooking with the Gills, is set to launch in early 2025. Produced by Sunderland’s MCC Media, the 15×11-minute series follows Gill and his family as they enlist the help of talented young cooks from around the U.K.

Aneeshwar’s Outdoor Adventures, which will see 9-year-old conservationist and wildlife enthusiast Aneeshwar Kunchala on a mission to protect and conserve the planet, will join the lineup in early 2025. MCC Media is producing.

Louise Bucknole, general manager for kids and family for the U.K. and Ireland at Paramount, said: “At Milkshake!, we continue to prioritize U.K.-produced preschool live-action series that feature our viewers exploring and learning about the world around them! These shows entertain and encourage learning through play, shining a fun and insightful spotlight on the themes of sustainability and caring for the environment, learning about world culture through play and the importance of understanding ingredients and how to make delicious food for your family. We’re excited to bring these innovative series to the Milkshake! audience!”
