Faith-based studio Big Idea Entertainment has appointed Mike Nawrocki, co-creator of the animated series “VeggieTales” and voice of the series’ Larry the Cucumber, to EVP of the studio. Previously he was VP of development.
“Mike Nawrocki has made invaluable contributions to values-based family and children’s entertainment over the years,” said Leslie Ferrell, GM of Big Idea Entertainment. “No one is better suited or more qualified than Mike for such an important leadership position.”
Big Idea Entertainment also has nabbed Mark Steele, president of Steelehouse Productions, for the newly created role of chief of creative affairs. He brings nearly two decades of writing, directing and producing experience.
