Company veteran to continue streaming network’s expansion by securing quality programming and cementing strategic partnerships.
WOODLAND HILLS, CA – Kabillion, a popular streaming network for kids and their families, has promoted Stevan Levy to president of programing and operations. A key member of the company since its inception in 2007, the Emmy Award-winning Levy most recently served as the company’s vice president of programming.
“Stevan has been a valuable part of Kabillion’s executive team for more than a dozen years and I can’t think of a better choice for leading our programming and operations during this dynamic time in the kids’ streaming media landscape,” remarked Splash Entertainment and Kabillion Co-CEO, Mike Young. “With his impressive major studio track record and great industry connections, Stevan will help ensure the network’s continued success for many years to come.”
“The children’s television ‘playground’ is constantly shifting and Kabillion is well positioned to quickly change with it, giving viewers access to a range of the best entertainment options, including voice-activated on-demand content and beyond,” noted Levy. “My goal is to provide Kabillion viewers with a robust slate of world-class programming that they can enjoy wherever they may be, as we continuously work to expand both our content and audiences.”
In his tenure at Kabillion, Levy has been instrumental in consistently increasing audience numbers annually, with last year’s figures climbing 22% over the previous period. Under his leadership, the company also expanded its offerings into massively multiplayer online games (MMOs) and mobile applications. In his new role, Levy will continue to lead the way in securing quality programming and cementing strategic partnerships to help bring platform and its offerings to more kids and families nationwide.
Prior to his term as Kabillion’s VP programming, Levy was VP of global operations and production, and is credited with realigning the company’s programming strategy, increasing television viewership by more than 1,100% and online viewership by 500%. Prior to this, he spent ten years at The Walt Disney Company, most recently as producer of development production, where he produced more than 80 pilots for Walt Disney Television Animation, including Phineas & Ferb and Kim Possible. In 2008 he won a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding New Approaches (Children’s) for I Got a Rocket!.
