In this role, she was instrumental in securing the rights to The Deep and is part of the team that helped put Technicolor’s animated shows Atomic Puppet and The Deep into production through structuring an Australian/Canadian co-production for The Deep and a French/Canadian co-production for Atomic Puppet. She pre-sold The Deep to key broadcasters across the world including Super RTL, BBC, ABC, YLE, SVT, NRK, France TV, Ketnet, Universal Kids and Netflix.

Alison also helped manage the exploitation of all rights of The Deep worldwide. The Deep has become a global hit, topping the children’s TV charts in the UK, Germany and Australia with toys and books already launched autumn 2018.
