Background: Ellen Peck Productions is the production company of Ellen Peck, an animator who has worked for Argosy Media, MTM Enterprises, Cairo Pictures Television, several ITV franchises (most notably Meridian Broadcasting), Baton Broadcast System, CTV, Alliance Atlantis, Entertainment One, Network Ten Australia, and FremantleMedia. In 2006, Peck and FremantleMedia formed a joint venture called EPP Worldwide, which then held the rights to all EPP programming from Peck herself, this joint venture was sold to Argosy Media in September 2013, causing the rights to the TV shows that Peck created to be acquired and picked up by Argosy. Despite this, Ellen Peck Productions themselves are still active to this very day.
