Ex-Disney Channel VP Nancy Kanter Signs Multi Year Deal with Netflix

Nancy Kanter and her Available Light Productions has partnered with Netflix to develop and produce various animated and live action projects, both feature films and series, for kids and families to enjoy. Kanter recently stepped down from her role as Executive Vice President, Content and Creative Strategy, Disney Channels Worldwide. In her 20 years at Disney she established the Disney Junior brand, developing popular programming for the network and growing them into franchises, including the Peabody Award-winning Doc McStuffins, the Emmy® Award-winning Sofia the First, the Emmy Award-nominated Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and The Owl House, and other hit series Elena of Avalor and Vampirina for Disney Junior. She also shepherded High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, Monsters at Work (for Disney +), Secret Society of Second Born Royals and the upcoming movies Spin and Sneakerella, all for Disney+.

Kanter says she is “delighted at this opportunity to partner with the innovative creators and executive team at Netflix … and I look forward to working with them to create new stories that will inspire the minds and touch the hearts of kids and families everywhere.”

We want Netflix to be the home of the world’s best storytellers and creative visionaries, and few embody that more than Nancy Kanter. She’s already made a lasting impact on a generation of kids — creating opportunities to see their lives on screen and inspiring them to feel connected to something bigger than themselves. We can’t wait for her to bring new stories to life at Netflix, and continue to entertain and inspire audiences around the world.
Melissa Cobb, Vice President of Original Animation, Netflix
