Canadian duo launch new production company

Two veteran Canadian TV execs have departed broadcaster Corus Entertainment in order to form their own production company.

Andrea Gabourie and Simon Watts will now produce factual, kids and scripted programming for North American broadcasters through their new venture, Pivotal Media.

Gabourie had led the live action production unit at Corus, while Watts managed financial and business affairs.

The first product from Pivotal is the second season of kids talent competition series Zoink’d! for YTV.
