In the newly created post, Redfern is charged with growing the company’s kids’ business, with oversight of franchise development, content distribution and gaming and video production, in addition to focusing on WSS’s recently launched eco-initiative Future Chicken.

She will be based at the company’s headquarters in Vancouver, Canada and have day-to-day oversight of the kids’ team, reporting to CEO Catherine Winder.

WSS has previously partnered with Robert Kirkman’s Skybound Entertainment on the animated drama Invincible for Amazon’s Prime Video. The company also produced adult animated comedy Psi Cops for Adult Swim in Canada, as well as adapting Roblox game Twilight Daycare as a scripted series produced for the Roblox platform.

“Redfern’s extensive experience in the children’s media and digital cross-platform landscape is an exciting addition to our team as we continue to innovate at the intersection of technology and storytelling,” said Winder.

“Her forward-thinking approach will further elevate WSS as a leader in multi-platform storytelling and the future of children’s media at large.”
