Spanish content producer and distributor DeAPlaneta Entertainment has appointed Carlos Biern as Content and Distribution Director of the kids & family division. Reporting to Diego Ibañez, the company’s Chief Brand Officer, Biern will try to grow the firm’s portfolio of animated series with original productions, coproductions and acquisitions, and position the brand on TV channels and OTT platforms globally.
Biern will be tasked with expanding DeAPlaneta Entertainment’s reach into new and growing markets in both production and distribution, and will pay particular attention to digital IPs targeting young audiences, plus video-on-demand platforms and immersive environments. The company is behind children’s and family brands including “Miraculous Ladybug,” “Milo,” “Gormiti,” “Heidi,” and “Maya the Bee.”
“It is a dream to join an international team with such experience and success in creating and expanding family brands. Our mission will be to create and identify major successes capable of merging digital and the latest creative trends, without ever losing sight of our core interactive audience," Carlos Biern commented.
Biern is the former President of DIBOOS (the Spanish Federation of Animation and Visual Effects Producers). Over the past decade, he has led creative, commercial, audiovisual, digital, interactive and merchandising teams at animation companies such as BRB Internacional and Toonz Media Group.
