Moonscoop Group co-founder Benoit di Sabatino (pictured) has been brought in to lead Banijay Group’s Zodiak Kids the division as CEO, just over a month after Jean-Philippe Randisi resigned from the role.
In his new role, di Sabatino will oversee production, consumer products, digital content and TV sales, charged with a mandate to grow a catalogue that currently includes Mister Maker, LoliRock, Totally Spies!, The Secret Life of Boys, Millie Inbetween, Kody Kapow and Lilybuds.
Prior to joining Zodiak Kids, di Sabatino co-founded Moonscoop Group, an independent content business specializing in the production and distribution of global kids programming. During his tenure, the outfit created and produced more than 1,500 hours of content spanning 100 titles including Code Lyoko, Geronimo Stilton and Titeuf.
Randisi stepped down in August after four years with Zodiak. He was responsible for drastically restructuring the kids prodco and merging three companies in the UK and France into Zodiak Kids.
