POGO ropes in programming ace Jules Fuller and Elias Kazmi

POGO has appointed programming experts Jules Fuller and Elias Kazmi to look after its production unit in India. While Fuller would take over as the Executive Producer, Kazmi would be the new Programming Director. Says Ian Diamond, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Turner Entertainment Networks Asia Inc, “The powerful addition of the creative pair will strike the right balance between international experience and Indian talent to produce local content that will resonate with Indian viewers.”

Dwelling on his new assignment, Kazmi says, “Introducing local flavour is another significant step forward in the evolution of POGO, and we are thrilled to be part of this exciting evolution. We look forward to developing and creating engaging content that will appeal to POGO viewers.” Fuller added: “Working so closely with Elias and the India team in production, creative, kids’ programming and the international and Indian TV markets will be a very potent mix.”

Earlier, Kazmi has worked as an independent consultant for the BBC and with Zeal Television, UK and as the Head of Production for Channel [V] India, where his responsibilities included taking care of all regular shows on the channel, production of all on-ground events both for non-broadcast, as well as for broadcast.

Fuller, on the other hand, is a specialist in music channels and youth entertainment programming. He has worked in Europe and Asia for a cross-section of media companies. He also served Channel [V] India as General Manager.
