Turner EMEA has promoted Sarah Fell, Producer on The Amazing World of Gumball, to Director of Original Series, Kids EMEA.
Sarah will be responsible for overseeing the development and production of all Turner Kids series across EMEA in her new role, including the recently-greenlit Elliott From Earth, which also has Gumball’s Mic Graves serving as Creative Director.
Finding and developing new talent and ideas will also fall under her remit, as well as translating those discoveries into content that can play out across Turner Kids platforms in the region.
“Finding the best creative talent across our region, sourcing and developing ideas into great shows is key to the success of our kids business,” says Patricia Hidalgo, Chief Content Officer, Turner EMEA & International Kids Strategy, who Sarah will report to.
“Shows produced here like The Amazing World of Gumball and The Heroic Quest of the Valiant Prince Ivandoe have not only enjoyed significant critical acclaim but have proven key in making our channels and digital platforms successful in EMEA and across the globe. None of this would have been possible without Sarah’s creative leadership and we’re delighted she will be taking on this expanded role to help bring more of our EMEA-made content to the forefront.”
Sarah joined Turner from Aardman Animation in 2011 as Producer of Cartoon Network’s award-winning animation The Amazing World of Gumball. She also oversaw production of The Heroic Quest of the Valiant Prince Ivandoe and Turner EMEA’s first Boomerang Original, The Happos Family.
