Big Bad Boo Studios has tapped Jay Silverman to oversee acquisitions for the multilingual children’s OTT platform Oznoz.

Silverman joins Big Bad Boo with over ten years of experience managing platforms in children’s media and public television. Most recently, he was heading up acquisitions and development for the NYXT public television channel in New York.

The Oznoz SVOD platform has a library with a focus on preschool content, featured in ten languages. Top languages on the SVOD are English, French, Spanish, Persian, Korean, Mandarin Chinese, Arabic and German.

Aly Jetha, CEO and co-founder, said: “We’re excited to have Jay join the Big Bad Boo team. Jay understands the Oznoz proposition, which is to bring multilingual, trusted content to families in a safe, ad-free environment. We are aggressive this year about continuing our content acquisition and library offering to continue to serve our audience in the United States and Canada.”

Silverman added: “I’ve admired Big Bad Boo’s commitment to making every child and family feel respected and self-assured for years now. I’m thrilled and privileged to work on an inclusive, multicultural, multilingual platform like Oznoz that is looking to expand and grow in the coming year.”
