The company – which handles such properties as Miss Spider’s Sunny Patch Friends, Di-Gata Defenders and Babar – will see Nelvana Studios integrated into its Kids Television division to allow for a more focused approach on development activity.

Nelvana Enterprises, meanwhile, will focus on broadcast sales, new platform opportunities and consumer products licensing for all Corus brands internationally. While the Paris and Shannon offices will remain open, the London and Los Angeles businesses will close.
A new portfolio within the television division has also been created covering lifestyle, drama and movies.

John Cassaday, president and CEO of Corus Entertainment, explained that the changes from the restructuring will be complete by January 2007, with the loss of some 85 jobs.
