Big Little Fish Television has hired Ros Attille, former head of Preschool Development at BBC Studios Kids & Family, has been appointed as its first head of Children’s & Young Audiences.

Attille, who previously developed and created hit returning titles including animated series JoJo & Gran Gran, and YolanDa’s Band Jam and Grace’s Amazing Machines, joins the four-year-old indie to grow its children’s slate.

Earlier this year, Big Little Fish Television produced its first ever children’s series, CBBC production Meet the McQueens, starring 14-year-old vegan chef Omari McQueen.

In the newly created role, Attille will be developing brand new projects for Omari as well as overseeing the company’s move into children’s animation and unscripted live action.

“It’s always been my aim to create brilliant, enduring and inclusive content for children of all ages, and Big Little Fish is the perfect fit for that ambition. Representation is high on my agenda, and I will endeavour to be an advocate for all children through our content” said Ros Attille, Head of Children’s & Young Audiences at Big Little Fish Television.

Big Little Fish Television is led by former Discovery commissioner Mark Procter and Attille joins COO Georgina Surtees and Creative Director Peter Usher as part of the company’s senior management team.

Usher said: “The knowledge and experience that Ros brings will allow us to make innovative and aspirational content for a really important age group that we highly value. I’m looking forward to working alongside her to bring some truly unique IP to the children’s market both here in the UK and beyond.”

In her first official engagement as part of Big Little Fish, Attille will be speaking at The Children’s Media Conference July 6th.
