Some interesting news from Kidscreen and other sources. Longtime Breakthrough Entertainment Exec, Joan Lambur, has left the company along with ex-Breakthrough VP of family entertainment Suzanne Wilson. Joan has launched Lambur Productions, with backing from Sinking Ship Entertainment. Sinking Ship has taken a minority stake in the new company, and they’ll be based out of Sinking Ship’s offices in Toronto. It’s an interesting development at a time when companies are being bought and sold left and right. Kudos to Sinking Ship for getting behind a new company.
Joan has been a major presence in kids programming for years, and this is exciting news for the industry. Best of luck to Joan and Suzanne in the new endeavor.
