Smith moves up at Entertainment Rights

As CBBC renews The Basil Brush Show, the puppet show's owner, coproducer and distributor Entertainment Rights has upped its md of distribution to the post of group commercial director.

In her new post, Jane Smith will be responsible for four divisions within London-based Entertainment Rights: marketing and global brands, L&M, home entertainment and creative.

Another new appointment at the company sees former Ragdoll marketing head Anya Hollis join Entertainment Rights as director of marketing and global brands. She will oversee the development of properties Postman Pat, Basil Brush and Little Red Tractor.

The news comes as CBBC's head of entertainment, Anne Gilchrist, orders a further 26 half-hours of The Basil Brush Show, coproduced by Entertainment Rights and The Foundation. The move, bringing the total to 52 episodes, ensures the fox will be on the box until well into 2005.
