KEITH CHAPMAN

There’s a lot to be said for advertising. It unearths talent like Keith Chapman, who once worked as an art director selling shaving foam and Wotsits before joining Jim Henson and his Muppets.

Keith went on to create Bob the Builder and, since Bob’s first appearance in 1999, the show has sold to every country in the world, generating $5bn in sales to date. A new-look series of Bob the Builder was launched in 2015.

Keith co-founded Chapman Entertainment, creating Fifi & the Flowertots and developing Roary the Racing Car. Chapman also produced Little Charley Bear and Raa Raa the Noisy Lion. His latest creation is Nick Junior’s global smash-hit preschool show, Paw Patrol, which is fast becoming another billion-dollar brand. Keith is currently developing more children’s shows and a couple of films.
