Hello Halo is launching a new kids content division, Hello Halo Kids, and has tapped their Head of Children’s Terri Langan to run it.
Hello Halo Kids aims to produce international children’s programmes, working with the best talent from television, film, theatre and literature. The launch of the new division comes on the back of the success of the indie’s existing series Junk Rescue.
Langan originally joined Hello Halo two years ago, after having led the CBeebies in-house development team for almost four years. Prior to moving into kids content, she spent 15 years working as a producer in sport, factual and as head of development for indies in London and Manchester.
Additionally, Hello Halo has secured a 30 episode commission from CBeebies for Let’s Go For A Walk. The format shows how every child can enjoy being outdoors and appreciate the nature on their doorstep. Even the everyday walks to nursery or the shops can be extraordinary and an expedition worthy of the greatest explorers. The series was commissioned by the BBC’s Children’s Commissioning Executive Julia Bond.
“Creating quality programmes for young people has never been more important and I am delighted to lead Hello Halo’s new division”, Terri Langan said in a statement. “I look forward to creating even greater content for our young audiences and working with the incredibly talented children’s production community here in Scotland.”
While Wendy Rattray, Managing Director of Hello Halo, added: “Terri is an exceptional talent in the world of children’s television. She’s an ambitious and highly creative exec and we’re excited about what’s on the horizon for Hello Halo Kids.”
