Vancouver-based animation studio Bardel Ent. has expanded to Toronto, with the appointment of Sarah Haasz as their Director of Development. A long-time veteran of Corus Ent., Haasz spent ten years in the Original Programming Department of Corus Kids, where she worked as a production exec on over 1500 hours of original content for YTV, Treehouse TV and Discovery Kids Canada.
"I'm happy to have Sarah on our team," says Bardel CEO Delna Bhesania. "It's a double-win for Bardel. With Sarah in Toronto, we'll be able to keep a closer relationship with our Central- and East Coast-based partners, as well as draw on Sarah's expertise from the broadcast realm." In her current role, Sarah will oversee Bardel's development slate with the development team in Vancouver and work on shows that are currently in production.
