LazyTown stands stronger than ever. The company's relatives are big-hearted and seem to have every reason to be optimistic about the business in the coming years. "We have just become part of the Turner group, which in turn is part of Time Warner. Those agreements were finalized late 2011, and the purpose, among other things, to bring on board an owner who has the right distribution channels," say...
Kristján Kristjánsson, former Spotlight man and head of information department at Fl Group, has joined Magnús Scheving and colleagues in LazyTown and will hold the position of the company’s media representative.
LazyTown’s expansion and success has hardly gone unnoticed. The show was recently nominated, for the second year in a row, for the British BAFTA Awards as the best foreign television program. In addition, there is a movie based on the series in the works, and LazyTown live shows are in full swing all over the world. Magnús has recently returned from a long trip around South America.
Kristján has, according to his own words, been walking around a bit at LazyTown over the past few days. “I really like the collaboration with Magnús,” says Kristján in an interview with Fréttablaðið. As everyone knows, he is an energetic and enthusiastic man, and he also has fun and big ideas that will be fun to watch,” says Kristján.
