Eryk Casemiro joins Marathon having previously worked as senior VP of creative affairs at Klasky Csupo (Rugrats, The Wild Thornberrys) for seven years until 2003, when he left to work as an independent producer on projects such as Olivia, The Mr Men Show and Poppy Cat.

He has relocated from the US to France for the Marathon role, which will see him manage the creative aspects of all current kids’ productions at the firm and lead its team of exec producers.

He will report to Vincent Chalvon-Demersay and David Michel, CEO and MD of Marathon Media respectively. “Eryk’s arrival is a logical move for Marathon Media as we are expanding our activities in LA with the recent greenlight of Get Blake,” said Chalvon-Demersay and Michel.

Get Blake is a coproduction between Marathon, Nickelodeon in the US, Gulli in France and Game One, described by Casemiro as “Terminator with squirrels.”

“It follows a teenage boy who becomes the target of alien squirrels who’ve come from the future to eliminate him,” Casemiro told C21. The comedy toon is aimed at six- to 11-year-olds.
