Prior to moving into production and distribution at Planet Nemo in December 1998 Nathan was a broadcaster with over 15 years experience in the kids’ business. Starting his career at Nickelodeon UK in the early 1990’s he was responsible for S+P and assisted in programme acquisitions. After two years and the best grounding in kids’ TV anyone could ever ask for, he moved to Fox Kids as Programming Manager for the UK channel. He was then promoted to Head of Programming, Jetix Nordic (formerly Fox Kids Scandinavia), Poland and CEE in 1999 and in April 2001 became Head of Acquisitions, Jetix UK. Nathan was promoted to Director of Pan-European Acquisitions & UK Programming, Jetix Europe in April 2005. In this capacity he was responsible for overseeing all acquisitions and co-productions within the Pan-European Programming Department, as well as assessing, acquiring, creating and developing all the schedules for both the UK and Pan-Euro Channels. At Planet Nemo Nathan is responsible for co-productions and international sales as well as the development of new projects. Nathan is also currently working with Digital Rights Group in London on their kids business, Little Portman. In this role he works closely with the international sales team to create opportunities for the group’s slate of live action comedies co-produced with CBBC.
