Video Interview with CAKE’s Tom van Waveren

NEW YORK: Tom van Waveren, the CEO and creative director of CAKE, talks to TV Kids‘ Kristin Brzoznowski about some of the highlights from the catalog, what makes the company a good partner for producers to work with and plans for children’s content in the digital space.

There continues to be a strong interest in comedies for 6- to 11-year-olds among kids’ programming buyers, according to CAKE’s van Waveren. The London-based producer and distributor offers a number of series aimed at this demo, including the animated shows Bottersnikes & Gumbles, which premiered earlier this year on CBBC and Netflix; Angelo Rules, currently in production on its fourth season; and Angry Birds content, a result of the company’s partnership with Rovio Entertainment.
