9 Story Media Group is excited to announce that it has named Emmy® Award winning producer Karen Fowler as Vice President, Development (Animation and Live Action), heading up the 9 Story Development team in Toronto.

Reporting to CCO Angela Santomero, Karen will be working closely with development and production VPs Jennie Stacey, Sarah Wallendjack and Jeremy Slutskin, to help expand 9 Story Media’s development and production slate.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have Karen join our team,” Angela says. “An accomplished producer, Karen will be a welcomed presence in our Toronto studio, supporting our creative talent, nurturing new shows through the development process, and maintaining our high standard and creative vision throughout production.”

Karen is a multi-Emmy Award winning Executive Producer, Showrunner and Producer, with a resume spanning Sesame Workshop, Nickelodeon and CBC Kids. 

Recently she was Development Exec and Creative Producer on Nickelodeon’s Abby Hatcher for Spin Master. Prior, she served as Executive Producer of The Sesame Workshop/PBS reboot of The Electric Company, which earned over 20 Emmy nominations and won 10.

“To work with the creative force that is Angela Santomero and stay in the Great White North is an absolute dream,” says Karen.

“I’m excited to dig in with Canadian creatives to develop animated and live action series from preschool through to young adults. Still pinching myself that I am part of this talented team of passionate storytellers!”
