Big Little Fish Hires for Children’s Content


Ros Attille, the former head of preschool development at BBC Studios Kids & Family, has been appointed as Big Little Fish Television’s first head of children’s and young audiences.

Attille previously developed and created hits such as JoJo & Gran Gran, YolanDa’s Band Jam and Grace’s Amazing Machines. She joins the four-year-old indie to grow its children’s slate.

Earlier this year, Big Little Fish Television produced its first children’s series, Meet the McQueens, starring 14-year-old vegan chef Omari McQueen, for CBBC. In the newly created role, Attille will be developing new projects for McQueen as well as overseeing the company’s move into children’s animation and unscripted live action.

Attille commented: “It’s always been my aim to create brilliant, enduring and inclusive content for children of all ages, and Big Little Fish is the perfect fit for that ambition. Representation is high on my agenda, and I will endeavor to be an advocate for all children through our content.”

Creative Director Peter Usher said: “The knowledge and experience that Ros brings will allow us to make innovative and aspirational content for a really important age group that we highly value. I’m looking forward to working alongside her to bring some truly unique IP to the children’s market both here in the U.K. and beyond.”
