Ramsay cooks up animated series

Celeb chef, Cuppa Coffee 'At Your Service'

Celeb chef Gordon Ramsay is already a pretty cartoonish character. Now he’s set to be the star of his own stop-motion animation series after striking a deal with Toronto-based animation house Cuppa Coffee Studios.

“Gordon Ramsay, at Your Service” is described as a half-hour laffer that will take “the essence of who he is and have a bit of fun with it,” according to Adam Shaheen, prexy of Cuppa Coffee.

The project will be shopped to buyers at next month’s Mipcom international TV sales confab in Cannes. Cuppa Coffee is in the process of recruiting a writer for “At Your Service.”

Cuppa Coffee is the animation house behind Nick at Nite’s primetime toon series “Glenn Martin, DDS” and MTV’s “Celebrity Deathmatch,” among other shows.

Ramsay is all over TV these days as host of Fox’s cooking competish “Hell’s Kitchen” and the restaurant-makeover series “Kitchen Nightmares.” He’s also fronted a number of skeins and specials in the U.K.
