Studio 100 Media has announced the appointment of Manuela Lumb and Richard Rowe as executive producers, as the company continues to add new content to its portfolio. 

Lumb’s and Rowe’s responsibilities will include scouting and developing new projects and IPs for kids’ series in addition to identifying partners for co-development and co-production. Building on the company’s European slate, Lumb will focus on German-speaking countries while Rowe will concentrate on English-speaking territories. 

Lumb’s career in commissioning and producing multi-genre content includes developing and producing German preschool brand, “KiKAninchen,” for KiKA and “Löwenzähnchen” for ZDF, as well as developing live-action series for Nickelodeon. For many years she was a commissioning editor at SWR and WDR (part of public broadcaster, ARD) responsible for the “Show with the Mouse” series. She will continue her longstanding work for Cartoon Media as host, chairperson and coach at the pitching and co-production events Cartoon Forum, Cartoon Movie and Cartoon Springboard.  

Prior to that, she was also head of the children’s department at Studio TV.Film GmbH and head of Development at Motionworks GmbH, developing animated series such as “The Adventures of Young Marco Polo” and “Coppelia,” a hybrid feature film together with Submarine.

Rowe has had a 20-year career identifying, commissioning, developing and producing internationally successful live-action and animated content such as “Inspector Gadget” (Warner Media & WildBrain), “Dorg Van Dango” (Nickelodeon International, Cartoon Saloon and WildBrain) and “The Zoo” (BBC & WildBrain).  

He worked for many years for the Canadian independent entertainment company, WildBrain/DHX Media, as director of international coproductions and acquisitions on a variety of children’s projects. Before that, he was part of the Turner Broadcasting-Team as director of acquisitions and original series, overseeing acquisitions and original series for EMEA kids’ channels.  

“We are thrilled to have Manuela and Richard on board to drive the expansion of our European slate,” says Martin Krieger, chief executive officer, Studio 100 Media. “Both are exceptional personalities, with profound expertise in the kids’ and family entertainment business. They are a powerful support in our goal to expand the Studio 100 lineup to new genres and target groups and I am excited they are joining us on this amazing journey.” 

In January, Studio 100 announced the appointment of Alexandros Visentin to the company’s media licensing team.
