Ex-CBC exec boards Sinking Ship

A former exec producer from the kids’ and youth department at Canadian pubcaster CBC has joined local prodco Sinking Ship Entertainment as head of production.

Carla de Jong left CBC in May for Sinking Ship, which was launched in 2004 and specialises in kids’ live-action cross-platform content, including Amazon’s original series Annedroids.

The prodco will be at Mipcom with a slate it claims to be worth over US$30m. It includes Chirp, the company’s first fully animated series, which was produced for CBC, and preschool series Now You Know (39×7′), What’s Inside (40×1′) and Giver (10×30′), all of which are TVO shows.

Earlier this year it hired former Teletoon exec Gavin Friesen as creative director of interactive, having launched an international distribution arm led by Lynn Chadwick at the end of 2013.
