Gaumont, the world’s first film company and producer of the award-winning series Narcos, the forthcoming animated series, Do, Re & Mi, starring Kristen Bell (Frozen) and Jackie Tohn (Glow) for Amazon Prime Video, and High in the Clouds, an animated feature developed together with Paul McCartney for Netflix, is continuing to grow its Animation and Family efforts in the U.S. with the addition of industry veteran, Michelle Sullivan. The announcement was made by Nicolas Atlan, President, Animation and Family, Gaumont.

Sullivan most recently served as a Development Executive for Amazon Studios where she was instrumental in developing and overseeing the production of Amazon Kids Originals scripted animated children’s series including Do, Re & Mi, Jessy and Nessy, Clifford The Big Red Dog, Wishenpoof, Click Clack Moo, Creative Galaxy, and Emmy-nominated, Bookaboo.

Her creative vision is aligned with Gaumont’s  and the energy and expertise she brings to the group will further inspire us in our ongoing quest to develop meaningful stories and compelling characters,” said Terry Kalagian, SVP Creative Development, Animation and Family.
