She said today several shows are now in development, including a drama that is being worked up with former Milkshake boss Nick Wilson.
During ten years of Channel 5, Symons ended up heading up programming for the preschool Milkshake strand.
She produced, wrote and directed several of its in-house shows, and oversaw a number of commercial spin offs, including creating and devising theatre shows and the launch of the Milkshake! magazine.
Ivy House will make shows targeting different demos, from preschool to tween. The projects in development span puppet shows, animation and live-action.
