UK indie producer Hello Halo has tapped former CBeebies development exec Terri Langan to serve as head of children’s. The hire is also being marked by the company’s first CBeebies commission, Junk Rescue, which will bow in spring 2018.
Langan will develop and create original kids content, while also serving as executive producer for any children’s projects the studio has in production. As such, she will be overseeing two 15 x 15-minute seasons of Junk Rescue, which teaches children about sustainability by showing them how to turn garbage into something useful.
Langan previously worked for BBC as a development executive from 2011 to 2015, where she commissioned CBeebies shows like Old Jack’s Boat, Swashbuckle, Mr Bloom Here and There, CBeebies Stargazing and Biggleton. She later worked as head of development for UK studio Flix Facilities and as creative director at Little Critics.
The commission follows a raft of preschool series ordered by CBeebies in June, including Waffle The Wonder Dog and re-ups for Pablo and Apple Tree House.
