Zoë Scurfield is to join Coolabi as its head of development and production, reporting to Michael Dee, Coolabi's director of content.

She will be responsible for developing and expanding Coolabi's television production business across animation and live-action. She will be executive producer for all Coolabi productions and will be the key point person for broadcasters and production partners. 

Coolabi Productions has grown to become one of the U.K.'s busiest independent producers of childrens' programming, delivering a second animated season of the "The Large Family" to CBeebies and TF1 in France, as well as the first season of live-action drama "Dead Gorgeous" to CBBC and ABC Australia. The next show out of the blocks will be the "Poppy Cat" animated series for Nick Jr.

Before joining Coolabi, Scurfield was an independent programming consultant involved in the strategy and development on such titles as "Bookaboo," "Mr Moon" and "Get Squiggling." Prior to this, she spent 13 years with The Walt Disney Company where she was executive director of programming for Disney Channels U.K., Scandinavia and emerging markets.
