Disney Television Animation (DTA) has signed an overall deal with writer, producer and director Latoya Raveneau.
The overall deal will see Raveneau develop and produce animated projects with DTA as well as fellow Disney-owned studio, 20th Television Animation, under the leadership of the studio’s executive VP Marci Proietto.
Raveneau is currently directing Disney Television Animation’s recently launched series The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder on Disney+. The deal includes terms for live-action content development. She is already developing a pilot at DTA under the leadership of Meredith Roberts, senior VP and GM for television animation at Disney Branded Television.
Disney Branded Television produces Monsters at Work, Alice’s Wonderland Bakery, Big City Greens, Marvel’s Spidey & his Amazing Friends and the upcoming Primos, Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, and Firebuds.
Raveneau began her professional career as a production assistant on Disney Junior’s Sheriff Callie’s Wild West and, since then, has worked as a writer, storyboard artist and director on multiple animated series. Her storyboard credits include Disney’s Miles from Tomorrowland and Puppy Dog Pals. She also served as a writer on the Netflix preschool series Super Monster and assistant-directed the Adult Swim series Final Space.
Disney Branded Television president Ayo Davis said, “We’re all delighted that Latoya chose Disney to be her creative home, and we’re looking forward to the fresh and inspirational stories she will create in the kids and family space.”
