Beano Studios has named ABC’s Chris Rose as its new director of development and production.

Working with Beano Studios CEO, Emma Scott, Rose will lead the development and production of long form television, film and theatre productions for Beano’s existing cast of characters.

He will also work with Beano Studios development and writing teams to develop new characters and reinvigorate some Beano favourites for a range of new platforms.

Rose joins the firm from the ABC in Australia, having previously held the position of commissioning editor for children’s television.

Beano Studios, CEO Emma Scott, said: “Chris shares our ambition to make Beano Studios an international force in the world of long form children’s story telling, whether that’s for television, film, theatre or other platforms.

“He’s a big hitter with the right mix of experience and flair to take the Beano brand, its well-loved characters and brand new ones to a whole host of new audiences.”

Rose, added: “Beano is one of the best-loved children’s brands in the world and Beano Studios has such an ambitious and forward thinking vision for its future, so it’s amazing to be able to catapult their treasured characters to the next level as well as introduce the world to some awesome new ones.

“I grew up with these characters and can’t wait to get started on their new adventures.”

Beano Studios launched in September 2016 and has already announced its first major production: Dennis and Gnasher: Unleashed, due to air on CBBC later this year.
