Animation producer and industry vet Bill Schultz has formed his own LA-based creative company, Home Plate Entertainment (HPE), which will partner with global creators, studios, co-producers and networks to produce and exploit family content across all platforms.
The company is positioned to offer a range of top-level IP development, financing, producing and distribution services on a customized level.
Right off the bat, Home Plate has forged a relationship with Toronto-based Yowza Animation on its new comedy series concept. Home Plate has also signed other studio partnerships, which will be announced before next week’s Mipcom market in Cannes, France.
Schultz stepped down as Co-CEO of Moonscoop’s US subsidiary earlier this year but will continue his relationship with the company as a shareholder and also serve as EP on the studio’s Hero:108 and the Wild Grinders franchises.
