For anyone who hasn’t had a chance to pick up a copy of Kidscreen‘s Feb/March issue to catch up on People Moves, Karen K. Miller has been named director of Acquisitions and Co-Productions at Disney Channels Worldwide.
The TV exec joins Disney after nearly two decades of acquiring, developing and producing animated and live-action television programming for kids and families at companies including Atlantyca Entertainment and Warner Bros.
Miller is now responsible for creating and executing acquisition strategies for all Disney kids channels in the US, including Disney Channel, Disney XD and the new programming block Disney Junior. She will serve as the point person to identify new acquisition and co-production opportunities in the marketplace and collaborate with all of the Disney branded channels worldwide on driving global and multi-territory acquisitions.
Miller most recently oversaw the development, production and distribution of Atlantyca Entertainment’s animated series Geronimo Stilton. Prior to that, she was animation associate producer on the 20th Century Fox feature film The Simpsons Movie. Miller spent the previous 18 years at Warner Bros. where she last served as VP of Property Acquisitions for the Consumer Products division.
