Indra Suharjono Takes Over at Cartoon News Firm Next Media Animation

Indra Suharjono has been appointed as CEO of Next Media Animation, the Taiwanese firm famous for its jaded reenactments of U.S. news. Its animated news clips went viral beyond Chinese territories when it illustrated the Tiger Woods infidelity scandals and the Jet Blue flight attendant incident.

Suharjono was until recently executive VP and managing director of Viacom International Media Networks. She will report to Jimmy Lai, the controversial media magnate who has received death threats over the political stance of his Hong Kong-based Apple Daily newspaper, which is rarely aligned with the mainland Chinese government.

“We are aggressively moving forward with plans to grow our animation production in the kids’ space, and Indra has the relationships and acumen to help drive this expansion,” said Lai, whose Apple business has recently been rumored to be cutting jobs in Hong Kong.

Suharjono, who will be based in Taipei, replaces Kith Ng, who joins the board of NMA.
The studio is famous too for its friendly feud with U.S. talk show host Conan O’Brien, and for satirizing the British royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton.

NMA claims to be one of the largest 3D computer animation studios in Asia, with more than 500 creators and animators based in Taipei.
