Boyle actor and writer Chris O’Dowd is set to narrate a new kids TV programme Puffin rock.

The co-producers of Puffin Rock, Cartoon Saloon, global publisher Penguin, and Derry’s media company, Dog Ears are delighted to announce that the series will be broadcast by Nick Jr in the UK and RTÉjr in Ireland. Production begins this month and delivery will begin in October 2014. The multi-platform brand follows the adventures of a family of puffins living on a wild and beautiful Irish island. Penguin will produce products to accompany it.

O’Dowd will mix observations with interesting facts about the wildlife. He said “I love the whole idea behind Puffin Rock and the style of the artwork...I do love anything with Puffins.”
