Warner. Bros Discovery backed kids’ indie, Bright Little Labs, has appointed a new development team and launched ‘Ventures Programme’ – to promote and help scale up IP potential
The new “Ventures Programme” looks to “discover and work with early career creatives, ideally from diverse and under-represented backgrounds to unleash the potential of new children’s media IP.”
Bright Little Labs has a focus on “inclusive role models and learning-inspired adventures.” and is now looking for new creatives to develop early stage concepts with Bright Little Labs, with the aim to “incubate, co-create, produce, scale and commercialise novel children’s media IP from a wide group of talented creators from diverse backgrounds.”
The launch of the ‘Ventures Programme’ follows the recent announcement of the appointment of new COO, Nick Young, and the appointment of Japhet Asher and Mario Debois as development execs and Remi Morrison as creative producer, which the successful early stage creatives would have the opportunity to work with.
Submissions are now open and will remain open until 31 July 2022. If successful, creators will work with the BLL development team as well as other industry partners and experts to further develop and refine their idea.
CEO and Founder of BLL, Sophie Deen, said “It’s an exciting time here at Bright Little Labs, Mario and Japhet bring a wealth of industry experience and Remi brings real entrepreneurial spirit. With these hires, plus the Ventures programme, we really hope to identify and develop a number of new and exciting IPs.”
BBL Board member and diversity champion, Marcus Ryder, said; “It is exciting to see BBL seeing the importance of not only championing underrepresented talent but also recognising the commercial imperative and opportunities that diversity and inclusion bring to creating new IP. I am looking forward to seeing who applies for the programme and I’m hoping that in the process we can break a glass ceiling or two making our industry fairer and more equitable for all”
