Channel 4 has commissioned a Christmas animation of Sir Terry Pratchett’s The Abominable Snow Baby.
It will air during the festive period in December, according to a statement from the broadcaster.
Channel 4 announced the move on Wednesday to coincide with the birthday of late author Sir Terry, who died in 2015 aged 66.
The Abominable Snow Baby tells the story of an English town which is thrown into disarray by a heavy snowfall and the appearance of a 14-foot monster.
The story features in Sir Terry’s book Father Christmas’s Fake Beard.
Channel 4’s head of drama Caroline Hollick said: “Terry Pratchett’s The Abominable Snow Baby is a magnificent, heart-warming, riotously funny story about love, courage and compassion.
“Witty, entertaining and deeply moving in equal measure, it captures the spirit of Christmas with Sir Terry’s unique charm.”
