YouTube targets children’s TV?

October 7, 2014

YouTube has seeking a dedicated head of family entertainment and learning to work within its YouTube Originals division.

The recruitment ad is seeking someone to “lead YouTube Original’s efforts in supporting the next great storytellers in filmed entertainment, from action to romance to horror, sci-fi and beyond”.

“For years we’ve seen a lot of traction across both YouTube EDU and family entertainment. This role will help us further build out these offerings,” a spokesperson told review site Recode.

The job posting follows reports earlier in the year that YouTube was working on a “family-friendly” version of its service, as well as claims of wider plans by Google to let parents create accounts for their children and control how they use its services.
