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.”
