Coolabi has appointed Zoë Scurfield as its new head of development and production.
A former Walt Disney Company executive, Scurfield will report to Coolabi's director of content Michael Dee, and will be responsible for the development and expansion of the firm's TV production business across animation and live action.
She will be executive producer for all Coolabi productions and will be the key contact for broadcasters and production partners.
"This new role puts me in a great position to make full use of my experience and to help drive Coolabi's rapid expansion as content producers, and I am looking forward to working with key broadcasters in the development of existing properties, while discovering and nurturing new ones," Scurfield said. "I'm delighted to be joining such a talented and strategic team at this exciting time."
Prior to joining Coolabi, Scurfield was an independent programming consultant involved in the strategy and development on such titles as Bookaboo, Mr Moon and Get Squiggling. Before this, she spent 13 years at Disney, holding a number of senior positions, rising to executive director, programming for Disney Channels UK, Scandinavia and Emerging Markets.
