Evan is a creative producer and packager (and sometimes a writer and director, but not if he can avoid it). In a career spanning twenty years, he’s made TV series, films, and digital content; worked on animation, live action, and stereoscopic 3D; been a buyer and a seller (sometimes both at once); and divided his time between launching breakthrough original properties and reinventing classic IPs. His goal on every project is to make something that will become someone’s favourite thing.
Career highlights include:
- Sonic Boom. Developed and packaged series with partners; pre-sold to Cartoon Network; now serving as executive producer/co-showrunner
- EVP of production and development at Classic Media. Developed and produced 4 animated films for TV and DVD release, including ‘Casper’s Scare School’ and ‘Here Comes Peter Cottontail: The Movie’, and 4 TV series, including ‘George of the Jungle’ and ‘Gerald McBoing Boing’. (All sold to Cartoon Network)
- LazyTown. Developed series, pre-sold 40 half-hours to Nickelodeon along with creator Magnus Scheving, and served as consulting producer.
