In the newly created role, Doolan will oversee Zag’s global strategy of content distribution across all platforms including television, home entertainment and digital media.

She will be responsible for properties in the Zag Heroez portfolio – an umbrella brand franchise that brings together superheroes from Zag’s animated properties. Her first priority will be the company’s newest IP, Ghostforce, which was recently acquired by Disney Channels US and debuted in October on Disney XD.

Doolan will also work in partnership with Mediawan’s ON Kids & Family for Miraculous – Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir, as well as all future Zag properties.

Doolan has more than 20 years’ experience managing, marketing and selling TV and retail products and properties.

She spent 17 years at Spain’s Zinkia Entertainment, most recently as global head of international TV distribution and coproductions. In her earliest and most long-lasting role as MD of brand and business development, she was responsible for financing, marketing and managing hit brand Pocoyo worldwide.

“Maria has an extensive brand management background, spearheading efforts across programme distribution and consumer products and is an expert at driving strategy, building brands and adding value,” said Zag founder and CEO Jeremy Zag.

“In her new TV content role, she will work closely with our consumer products executives to craft strategies for TV placement with best-in-class partners around the globe to build strong platforms from where we can launch new TV shows under the Zag Heroez universe.”
