Lindsay Watson Joins Kindle Entertainment

Animation producer and consultant joins BAFTA Award-winning British production company as Head of Animation for upcoming slate of kids projects.

LONDON -- British production company Kindle Entertainment has announced the addition of a new member of its team. Animation producer and consultant Lindsay Watson will be joining the company as Head of Animation to develop four of the latest television properties on their kids’ slate.

Projects range from preschool book properties including David Melling’s best-selling and much loved Hugless Douglas (Hachette) and Ivy & Bean, a New York Times best-seller from Chronicle Books by Annie Burrows aimed at 5-9 year-olds.

The slate has a focus on great comic storytelling, vibrant characters and distinctive role models. Ivy & Bean has two high-spirited, imaginative girls at its heart to address the poverty of strong girl characters in the animation market.

Kindle Entertainment is best known in the animation landscape for TV series Dinopaws, which was co-produced with Laughing Gravy (U.K.) and Guru Studios in Toronto. The animated comedy for preschoolers feature a trio of dinosaurs and won the award for Best Animation at the 20th International Shanghai TV Festival.
