Grand Rapids, Michigan-based Enthusiastic Productions has hired JBMW Media, helmed by ex-VP of worldwide distribution for Sesame Street Jennifer Monier-Williams, to distribute its flagship show, Come On Over!
Monier-Williams’ experience at Sesame involved overseeing international co-pros and local adaptations initiated by the Workshop’s global television group as well as selling Sesame Workshop catalogue programs to more than 140 countries.
While her primary focus is on international sales, Monier-Williams is also charged with finding a domestic home for the series.
Come on Over! centers around the day-to-day explorations of artist and creator Joel Schoon Tanis, and includes a variety of multigenerational, multicultural characters who ‘come on over’ to play their way through a new situation. The 23 x half-hour series for kids four to eight has a multimedia component that includes shorts, live events and an interactive website.
