Young gun producers Gian Christian and Dina McPherson of Galaxy Pop will open a Los Angeles office in November and have signed with management firm The Gotham Group.
The Melbourne duo, whose productions have included Get Ace and Rock It!, have sold content to over 120 territories worldwide.
“With the success of our content driving our growth internationally, we’re now focusing strategically on creating targeted content for the North American market,” said Gian Christian.
Dina McPherson added, “We already have multiple projects underway for this initiative, so the move is really one of natural progression particularly after signing with Gotham.”
Overseeing the writing, producing and directing of their kids and teen slate, they will also begin shooting a feature comedy New Cupid in late 2016.
“Galaxy Pop is one of the most creative and successful kids content producers in Australia,” says Julie Kane-Ritsch, Head of the Animation and Family Entertainment Division at The Gotham Group. “We’re thrilled to represent them and know that their fresh sensibility, highly creative talent and well produced shows will find great success here in the U.S.”
A second season of Get Ace begins production later this year.
