Netflix’s Jasmine Johnson has been tapped as the head of Stoopid Buddy Stoodios (Robot Chicken, SuperMansion). She has served as an original feature animation production executive at Netflix, and will oversee production of the studio’s slate and manage the day-to- day business, reporting directly to the founders of Stoopid Buddy Stoodios- Seth Green, John Harvatine IV, Matthew Senreich and Eric Towner.
