Nancy Kanter

Children’s programming is the heart of the Disney brand, and Kanter ensures the content that flows across its global networks remains magnetic for young viewers and trusted for parents. She spearheads the content strategy for original live-action and animated series, with an eye to bringing top creators into the Disney fold for multiple projects. She also formed the Disney Junior Educational Resource Group, an in-house team responsible for the curriculum development and focus group studies of Disney Junior content and brand extensions. Kanter’s Disney world is about to expand with the just-launched direct-to-consumer service Disney+, which promises plenty of new originals.
