Veteran animation producer and development consultant Terry Kalagian has joined Rainmaker Entertainment as VP of business development.

In her new post, Kalagian will focus on developing cross-platform distribution for Rainmaker's properties, starting with the recently revived ReBoot. She also will expand the company's work-for-hire business.

Kalagian will report directly to Catherine Winder, president of Rainmaker. She also will work closely on the company's internal development slate with director of development Kimberly Dennison.

"Terry is a highly respected professional in our industry who brings her vast research and programming expertise, in addition to her knowledge of ancillary markets, to Rainmaker," says Winder. "She'll be a great addition to our new executive team."

Kalagian comes to Rainmaker from her own company, Kalagian Productions, where she was a consultant on production, development and research for the likes of Cartoon Network, Starz Media, Marvel, Mattel, Wild Brain and Blink Studios.

She previously spent 10 years at Cartoon Network, serving as VP of research and VP of programming, acquisitions and co-productions. Her extensive background in market research includes jobs with Dimac Direct and affiliates of the NBC and CBS TV networks.
