'A li'l bit of love makes a world of difference'
By the age of 30, Kenn Viselman was responsible for over $2 billion in sales. By 40, that number skyrocketed to over $12 billion. It's now estimated that the entertainment properties with which he is associated exceed a staggering 20 billion dollars.

Additionally, his team is producing itsy bitsy Schoolhouse, a global didactic children’s project and The Wish Genie based on his book of the same title.
The Oogieloves in The Big Balloon Adventure, was the world's first interactive family film, one of the widest independent film releases in US history and the first theatrical created for preschoolers & their families. The Oogieloves turn passive viewing into an active experience. Currently, Viselman is co-producing the Oogieloves' II & III as well as negotiating a deal for the TV series.
Viselman is the maverick and producing partner for the Teletubbies in the Western Hemisphere. He's credited as the marketing genius behind Thomas the Tank Engine & Shining Time Station and a driving force behind the rebirth of the classics Eloise and Noddy.

His brands have become wildly successful both on and off the screen including top-selling toys, books, videos, clothing and numerous ancillary products.

Viselman has created an empire by marketing and monetizing entertainment through his unique use of storytelling.
For the past 30+ years, I’ve been credited with $25 BILLION dollars in commercial success and have worked on some of the most ground-breaking, controversial and successful kids’ series of all time (including Thomas the Tank Engine & Teletubbies)… and now I’m executive producing a new series, MeteoHeroes, the definitive series about Climate Change Education already airing in 145 countries, 22 languages. MeteoHeroes was created to help children feel hopeful and deal with their increasing and impending Climate Anxiety. Without a doubt this is the most important and imperative series I have ever worked on. Whether or not you personally believe in Climate Change is not the issue… the fact is that our children are gravely concerned about it .
