Nickelodeon and Paramount Animation Name Latifa Ouaou, Eryk Casemiro as EVPs; Claudia Spinelli as SVP of Series Animation for Big Kids

Paramount Animation and Nickelodeon Animation are further aligning under president of animation Ramsey Naito with a pair of major executive moves, Variety reports.

Courtesy of Paramount Animation and Nickelodeon Animation Studio

Latifa Ouaou has been named Executive Vice President (EVP) of movies and global franchises for Paramount Animation and the Nickelodeon Animation Studio. Ouaou will oversee theatricals and streaming film content across both Paramount and Nickelodeon.

On the series side, Eryk Casemiro has been promoted to Executive Vice President global series content for Nickelodeon Animation. Casemiro will oversee animation series content for preschool and kids ages 6-11 across all formats and platforms for Nickelodeon Animation Studio.

“Latifa has an incredible resume and an incredible reputation,” Naito says. “The community knows her and loves her. She’s a talent magnet. She has great taste in material. And she really has worked in so many aspects of animation that she can really see a movie through from development through production. She’s just really topnotch.”

Ouaou was most recently with Illumination, where she executive produced such films as The Grinch and the upcoming Minions: The Rise of Gru. Before that, she worked for DreamWorks Animation as a producer, working on the Shrek franchise and Puss in Boots, and she co-produced Monsters vs. Aliens.

Casemiro was previously Senior Vice President (SVP) of preschool at Nickelodeon and most recently was an executive producer on the studio’s Rugrats reboot. He worked on the original Rugrats when he was senior VP of creative affairs at Klasky-Csupo Productions. While at Klasky-Csupo, Casemiro was responsible for the development and production of such Nickelodeon shows as The Wild Thornberrys, Rocket Power, As Told by Ginger and All Grown Up. He also led development and production of feature films for Paramount Pictures, including Rugrats Go Wild, The Wild Thornberrys Movie, Rugrats in Paris: The Movie and The Rugrats Movie.

“Over the past three years, we’ve scaled to such a degree that it really has allowed us an opportunity to pull back and reorganize and put in place two really fantastic lieutenants, helping to drive and continue to build movies and series,” Naito says. “Latifa and Eryk each have outstanding track records for developing and producing some of the most beloved and recognizable animated content for kids and families, and I am excited to have them take on these new key roles. Under their leadership, Paramount and Nickelodeon are building the next chapter of groundbreaking storytelling.”

Ouaou and Casemiro will report to Naito.

Claudia Spinelli, who was previously senior VP, Animation Department, will be senior VP, Series Animation for Big Kids. Spinelli will oversee 6-11 animation development and current series for Nickelodeon Animation, and she will continue to report to Casemiro.

The past three years have been a whirlwind for Nickelodeon, culminating in an explosion on projects. “About three years ago, when we started this new chapter of Nickelodeon, there were maybe nine things in production. And now, cut to today, having lived through the challenges of a pandemic, we’re now at nearly 60 productions across series and shorts and movies, comprised of theatricals as well. And last year, we had historical news with Nickelodeon and Paramount Animation combining forces under one roof. I think it continues to illustrate our growth,” Naito explains. “It supports and aligns our content plans for everything. It fortifies us as an animation powerhouse.”

Among the projects in the pipeline for Nickelodeon and Paramount Animation are the launch of Big Nate as well as production on another Lincoln Peirce book adaptation, Max and the Midknights; more from popular franchises, including a PAW Patrol: The Movie sequel, and new seasons of the PAW Patrol series as well as a spin-off; Star Trek: Prodigy, Baby Shark, Blue’s Clues & You and Santiago of the Seas, as well as Monster High, Transformers and Tiny Chef, which are currently in production.

“We’re planning to launch a whole new slew of shows, which I’m really thrilled about. And Big Nate is a big one. Big Nate is launching in on Paramount Plus Feb. 17,” Naito says. “Big Nate is … based on a book that’s sold over 20 million copies worldwide. Translated in 30 countries. So I feel like there’s not a fourth grader across the globe who doesn’t know who Big Nate is and isn’t excited about this show. The leadership on the show and the look, the stories, it’s just so fun. It’s going to be a phenomenal show.”

Another show Naito is excited about is Tiny Chef. “That’s with our partners Imagine. And Tiny Chef is somewhat of a phenomenon YouTube. Kristen Bell is also working with us on that. And then we have Monster High with Mattel and Transformers with Hasbro. So we’re super excited about all the new shows coming in.”

Other new series include Hamsterdale, Zokie Sparkleby and Rock, Paper, Scissors, which came out of the Intergalactic Shorts Program. Naito says shorts from the program will premiere this year, but Rock, Paper, Scissors was greenlit as a series. It’s created by Kyle Stegina and Josh Lehrman. “It’s really just a hilarious show about Rock, Paper and Scissors, who are characters that everyone’s going to fall in love with,” Naito says.

“On the movie side, last year we had four big successful premieres with Sponge on the Run, Rumble, The PAW Patrol Movie and The Loud House movie that we premiered on Netflix,” Naito says. “Under Latifa’s leadership, we have a strong slate of movies coming. She will oversee our development slate and new content coming in.”

One of the movies is The Tiger’s Apprentice, slated for February 2023. It stars Henry Golding and is directed by Raman Hui and co-directed by Paul Watling and YongDuk Jhun. Bob Persichetti, who was one of the directors of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, is a producer on the project.

Other movies include Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Next Chapter, produced in partnership with Point Grey Pictures’ Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver and directed by Jeff Rowe, slated for August 2023; and PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie, produced in partnership with Spin Master and directed by Cal Brunker. Also under Ouaou’s purview will be the movie strategy for Avatar Studios.

For Nickelodeon and Paramount Animation, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. And it’s all happening while they are still 100% remote, due to the ongoing pandemic.

“I think the reason why we’re thriving is because our teams are so dedicated to their work,” Naito explains. “They love what they do and the artists are not only so incredibly talented at what they do, but they’re just great managers and figured out how to pivot from being able to work and do what they do in person to over Zoom. Which is totally different, a whole other set of challenges, but they figured it out. We all figured it out together.”

Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Share Secrets of the Sewer, Ninja Tactics, and Teamwork at the Children’s Museum of Naples, Fl.

Turtle Power! Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles™ Share Secrets of the Sewer, Ninja Tactics, and Teamwork at the Children’s Museum of Naples


NAPLES, Florida (January 13, 2022) – After more than three decades of battling evil and exemplifying teamwork, the beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) will appear in a museum exhibit for children and families to enjoy at the Children Museum of Naples. The four funny “heroes in a half shell” will share life lessons and team-building skills with their crime-fighting tactics in Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles™: Secrets of the Sewer™ opening on January 23 in Naples, Florida. The exhibition will run through May 15.

At the Children’s Museum of Naples, families will be transported to the underground home of the crime-fighting heroes to see what really happens in their secret hideaway. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles brothers Leonardo (the tactical, courageous leader in blue), Michelangelo (the free-spirited jokester in orange), Raphael (the aggressive tough guy in red), and Donatello (the scientist and technological genius in purple) invite families to their New York City sewer lair to train together and learn about the Turtles’ comedic, skillful strategies.

“The whole is often greater than the sum of its parts and we are hoping children and adults will be able to discover this in their own families as they work together. Along the way, our visitors will discover how each member of the team has something unique to contribute and they can accomplish a lot more together than they can alone,” said Jennifer Pace Robinson, president and CEO, The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis.

The Turtles are known and respected for their teamwork. As the TMNT’s sensei and adoptive father Splinter often tells them, “Together there is nothing you cannot accomplish.” Through team-building challenges, collaborative game and mind-teasing puzzles, families and friends will learn skills to help them successfully work together. Here are a few examples:

  • Build a “bridge” together and think creatively as a team to overcome challenges.
  • Assemble two electrical circuit puzzles by taking one apart to build another.
  • Plan ahead and use patience to navigate the rope maze.
  • Practice ninja speed and slicing skills while playing a dexterity-based computer game.
  • Shred up and practice your balance on skateboards.
  • Create a sewer pipe together and see where it goes.

The Turtles took the comic book world by storm in 1984—and since then Donnie, Raph, Leo, and Mikey have brought Turtle Power to cartoons, movies, video games and toys! 

Children and families across the nation will have the opportunity to explore Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles™: Secrets of the Sewer™ as it travels to children’s museums and science centers coast to coast.

About the Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples (CMON) – A Brain-Building Powerhouse

The Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples is a brain-building powerhouse and Southwest Florida’s first museum devoted for children and families to learn through play. With hands-on exhibit galleries, the accessible museum invites visitors of all ages to journey through the swamps of the Everglades, weave through a maze, climb a two-story banyan tree, or experiment with the water play station. Children can become a weather forecaster, a farmer, a chef, a fisherman, an artist, an architect, or a veterinarian; explore the cold of an igloo, the whoosh of the wind, the sound of the sea, and the effects of gravity. Throughout the day special activities encourage our guests to get involved, try something new and be energized. CMON offers a variety of interactive exhibits providing kids with education, play, learning, science, technology, engineering, inventions, space exploration, art, math, storybooks, creation, building, sensory, and child development.

This exhibit was produced by The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis and Nickelodeon.

The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis is a nonprofit institution committed to creating extraordinary family learning experiences across the arts, sciences and humanities that have the power to transform the lives of children and families

ViacomCBS Networks International (VCNI) is actively advancing its strategy to accelerate the global expansion of its streaming business and establish a strong ecosystem of free and paid offerings for streaming and linear television, and has appointed Mark Specht as Executive Vice President (EVP) for Central & Northern Europe and Asia (CNA).

Mark Specht

Mark Specht thus expands his area of responsibility to include other important markets, including the Benelux countries, the Scandinavian countries, Russia and the CIS countries, as well as Asia. Specht has held various management positions with VCNI since 2010, most recently as General Manager (GM) for Germany and Central Europe. He continues to report directly to Raffaele Annecchino, President & CEO of VCNI.

"I am very excited to take on this new role. As a leading global media company, we have immense opportunities with our streaming business, our growing studio and production capabilities in Europe and Asia, and our strong and vital linear business. We are creating a dynamic ecosystem with great, diverse teams consisting of top-notch experts, both professionally and personally, such as Sabine Anger, who leads the streaming part of the business, and Till Weidem├╝ller, who takes responsibility for the German business," said Mark Specht, EVP CNA, VCNI.

VCNI has appointed Till Weidem├╝ller as country manager for Germany and Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) CNA. In his new, expanded role, Weidem├╝ller will be responsible for the business in Germany and will work closely with Mark Specht in Central and Northern Europe and Asia. Weidem├╝ller has held various leadership positions in finance, sales and operations at VCNI since 2013 and will continue to report directly to Mark Specht.

"It is a pleasure to work with Mark and the new leadership team to build and develop a new, unique and powerful VCNI ecosystem of products and offerings in multiple markets in Europe and Asia. 2022 will also be a transformative year for our business in Germany, where we will further expand our FAST service Pluto TV and launch our new premium SVOD service Paramount+ later this year," said Till Weidem├╝ller, Senior Vice President, Country Manager Germany and Chief Commercial Officer CNA, VCNI.

Sabine Anger

VCNI has also appointed a new streaming executive: Sabine Anger is now Senior Vice President (SVP), streaming CNA. She is deeply rooted in the streaming industry and has extensive international experience from leadership positions at ProSiebenSat.1, Vivendi/Watchever, Warner Music Group and T-Mobile/Deutsche Telekom. In her new role, Sabine Anger is responsible for the development and optimization of the streaming services Pluto TV and Paramount+ as well as for the entire streaming business in some of VCNI's key European and Asian markets. Sabine Anger was already a member of the Supervisory Board of Pluto TV during her time at ProSiebenSat.1, where she played a key role in monetizing the AVOD business. Sabine Anger is based in Berlin and reports to Mark Specht.

"With offerings like Paramount+ and Pluto TV, VCNI is a powerful media company with an impressive variety of content and a unique combination of FAST and SVOD streaming offerings.
