LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, February 12, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SILVER BUFFALO & CITIZEN SKULL PRODUCTIONS ANNOUNCE NEW STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP
Silver Buffalo and Citizen Skull Productions are excited to announce a new strategic partnership to acquire and develop third-party properties and home-grown development to create original children’s television and digital media. This alliance marks Silver Buffalo’s first foray into original programming, while integrating their consumer products expertise into Citizen Skull’s new and developing projects pipeline.
The endeavor was orchestrated by Greg Alprin, EVP/CCO of Silver Buffalo, and Heather Kenyon, Executive Producer for the Los Angeles-based Citizen Kids, the children’s media division of Citizen Skull Prods. Alprin will head the new in-house content division for Silver Buffalo.
“This new venture represents a monumental step in our growth and strategic plans to diversify our activities in entertainment, and consumer products while further fueling our passion to create our own pop culture moments for kids of all ages. We’re excited to have Heather Kenyon and her years of experience in children’s programming on our team. Her knowledge and industry savvy will prove an invaluable asset as we make these great strides forward,” says Alprin.
The first project helping to build the foundation for Silver Buffalo’s new division will be a new animated TV series created by Ben Tollefson and Laurie “Lulu” Miller. Tollefson & Miller created the stage show “The Ohmies.” Later, the essence of this production was developed into the TV show, “The Moblees,” for CBC in Canada. Series development will be under the supervision of Heather Kenyon at Citizen Kids.
“This partnership allows Citizen Kids to enter the market confident that our projects can succeed, not only as a high-quality creative work, but also fully realized from a consumer products point-of-view thanks to Silver Buffalo’s invaluable insight and leading brand designers. We also know that on the other side, we have a partner with great relationships we can trust,” says Kenyon.
