June 2, 2016

Seasoned producer Lindsay Watson has joined UK-based Kindle Entertainment as head of animation, where she will develop four of its latest kids TV properties in the pipeline.

Watson will oversee book adaptations ranging from preschool properties, including author David Melling’s Hugless Douglas (pictured), through to the school-aged titles, like Ivy & Bean from author Annie Burrows.

Kindle Entertainment, which has been positioned for growth following a 25% buy-in from Lionsgate UK late last year, is also behind such kids co-productions as the Henry Winkler-starring Hank Zipzer and preschool series Dinopaws,

Since 2013, Watson has been at the helm of CANUK Productions, which promotes and develops British IP in partnership with Canadian studios for global distribution.
