Nickelodeon has made two key appointments to its preschool group. Sarah Landy has been promoted to Senior Vice President, Production & Development, and Aghi Koh joins the team as Vice President, Production & Development. Both will report to Cathy Galeota, Senior Vice President, Preschool Content, Nickelodeon Group.
In her new role, Sarah Landy will oversee the production and development of Nickelodeon’s live-action and animated preschool shows on the east coast. Based out of Nick’s New York office, she is responsible for the day-to-day development and production of series including the upcoming Blue’s Clues remake and Butterbean’s Café, and oversees the recruitment of artists and writers.
A 20-year Nickelodeon veteran, Landy was most recently Vice President, Production & Development, Nickelodeon Preschool, and she also served as the Executive in Charge for top-rated shows including Blaze and the Monster Machines, Bubble Guppies, The Fresh Beat Band and The Wonder Pets! Landy began her career in television as an intern at the network and quickly transitioned to assisting one of the creators of the original Blue’s Clues. She later became the production and development manager for productions such as LazyTown and Miss Spider’s Sunny Patch Friends.
Based in Burbank, Aghi Koh will supervise the production and development of Nickelodeon’s animated and live-action preschool series on the west coast. Koh joins Nickelodeon after 10 years at Universal Studios, where she was recently served as VP of Development and Production for Universal Studios Kids and Family, and was the first executive recruited to help establish the company’s foothold in original kids’ content. In her career, Koh oversaw development and production for the animated TV series Curious George for PBS; managed animated non-theatrical brands for Universal Studios including The Land Before Time, The Little Engine That Could and the Curious George movies; and executive produced the Walt Disney feature animated movie The Princess and the Frog.
