Fireman Sam is back with a bang in a brand new TV-film  starring Torchwood actor John Barrowman

If your little one is a fan of Fireman Sam, then there’s a brand new TV-film about to be released that’s you won’t want to miss!

Fireman Sam: Set For Action sees Sam scouted by Hollywood director, Don Sledgehammer, to be the star of his latest movie. While Sam is hesitant to take the role, his co-star, actor Flex Dexter – voiced by actor and singer John Barrowman – is determined to get the lead part and will stop at nothing to get it.

As more and more ‘accidents’ happen on set, Sam is held responsible and fired from both the movie and the fire service. It’s now down to Sarah, James and Mandy to discover who is really behind all the mishaps.

John Barrowman says, “I am absolutely delighted to be voicing the character of Flex Dexter in the brand new Fireman Sam: Set For Action movie and I’m very much looking forward to unleashing the havoc of Hollywood onto Pontypandy in this new feature-length special.

Fireman Sam is a true institution of children’s television and continuing its tradition of first-class entertainment for children and families, this special is a whirlwind, rollercoaster ride of fun, action and adventure that will thrill fans.”

The hour-long CG-animated film combines the excitement and glamour of the Hollywood film industry with all the action and heroic rescues that little fans love. You’ll love it too – hands up who remembers the original series back in the 80s?!

The show, which originally debuted as stop motion series in 1987, has had a resurgence of late, attracting a whole new generation of fans. Relaunched in 2008 in CGI, the name places and characters are much the same.

The film will premiere on Monday 22ndOctober on Cartoonito at 8am. You better set it to record!
