“We are thrilled to be partnering with eOne who are true leaders in this space and are crafting content for global audiences. We’re looking forward to continuing to grow Cedar Park and are excited to do that with Mark and Pete, who are truly the best in the business,” stated Ayer and Long.

Cedar Park and Ayer are represented by CAA.
