Sesame Workshop Appoints for Creative Development


Kim Díaz has been named as the newest VP of creative development at Sesame Workshop.

Díaz joined Sesame Workshop in 2016 and has been a leader in her field, overseeing all aspects of content development, generating new program ideas for kids and families, and serving as creative producer for select current series.

In her new post, Díaz will develop and lead the creative development strategy for new long-form and short-form series, specials and other programming initiatives. She will also be responsible for developing and vetting program ideas and genres and identifying and partnering with the right distributor for each property.

She will report to Kay Wilson Stallings, executive VP of creative and production.

“Kim is an invaluable leader, full of collaborative energy and thoughtful insight that furthers our mission,” said Wilson Stallings. “I know she will continue to bring her immense creativity to all of our content, fostering new ideas into incredible programming that helps kids grow smarter, stronger and kinder.”

Díaz added, “I am deeply passionate about creating educational entertainment for preschoolers and beyond. Growing up in an urban neighborhood in Queens, I remember watching Sesame Street and thinking that it was the only show out there that looked like where I lived. It’s an honor to be a part of helping kids like me see themselves through our beloved characters and brand-new programs.”
