Lagardere-owned Genao Productions has hired former TV presenter and Cyber Group executive Billy as head of unscripted and drama series ahead of MIPTV.
Billy, who previously presented a raft of series on Canal J and most recently worked at Cyber Group developing animated series including Ozie Boo and Manon, will develop new series for a family audience.
Genao Productions has produced animated series including Linus & Boom, Gnark and Fish & Chips and is moving into unscripted and drama for the first time.
“We are very happy to welcome Billy on board. Thanks to his drive, talent and experience of youth shows, Billy will bring energy and creativity to Genao to produce awesome family programs as part of this new adventure,” said boss Boris Hertzog.
