Added Raymundo: “Nacelle is rapidly expanding, and I’m thrilled to be part of the company’s growth plans. This is the best time to be an IP owner and producer, as more and more platforms open up both domestic and international looking for unique programs. Nacelle’s focus on escapism through comedy and pop culture hits a very broad audience, and I’m excited to be working with Brian and the team in bringing more of these to different media touch points worldwide.”
