A second exec is leaving Irish prodco JAM Media. Head of development, Chris Dicker‘s last day is May 1, and follows the lead of chief commercial officer John Reynolds, who announced his departure earlier this week.

During his seven years at JAM, Dicker co-created Becca’s Bunch with Conor Finnegan, which was picked up by Nickelodeon in the US and the UK. He then went on to create Jessy and Nessy with Amazon Prime Studios, as well as several other shows on the JAM development slate.

Dicker did not give any more information as to his next move except to say, “it felt like the right time to go after Jessy and Nessy dropped on Amazon Prime” in an email to Kidscreen. And he says that he has plans “afoot.”

Prior to joining JAM, Dicker was the lead animation/designer at Traveller’s Tales for seven years, before he joined Warner Bros./TT animation as creative director, a position he held for six years.
