Toy manufacturer Hasbro has hired former Sony exec Kathy Page as vice president of production for its new production studio.
She will be charge of production of programming, much of which will be aired on The Hub, the soon-to-launch kids channel run jointly by Hasbro and Discovery Communications. The network, which is run by Margaret Loesch, will launch this fall.
The studio will produce series based on its toy properties including GI Joe, My Little Pony and Transformers.
Page will report to former Granada America boss Stephen Davis, who became president of Hasbro Studios last summer. She was previously VP, animation at Hollywood studio Sony Pictures Television, where she oversaw production on series including The Spectacular Spiderman and Sit Down, Shut Up.
