Hasbro Studios, the production and distribution division of Hasbro, has split its boys/action and girls/pre-school creative teams into separate series development and current programming groups to meet increased production output.

The former heads of both units, which have been in place since the studio’s inception in 2009, have taken on new roles leading the revamped teams.

President Stephen Davis has promoted Mike Vogel (pictured) from executive director, boys and action programming, to vice president, development. Vogel will be charged with reimagining all boys, action, girls and pre-school creative efforts by the studio.

Linda Steiner, who had served as senior VP, girls and pre-school programming, has taken on a new role as senior VP, current programming, managing a growing number of studio-produced series once they are on the air.

Additionally, VP of production Kathy Page will lead an expanded team to support the restructured departments with production and post-production services, while continuing to assist in oversight of outside production service relationships.

Davis commented: "With the rapid growth of Hasbro Studios and the increasing number of shows we have on The Hub, as well as airing in international markets, I am making these changes to both streamline the creative process and make our organisation operate more efficiently.

"Michael, Linda and Kathy have all done outstanding jobs in their respective roles and now, with this restructuring, we will be able to create a more cohesive organisation."
