In his new position, Talbot will run Beano Studios' long form content development and production studio, where he will oversee the company's expansion into scripted live action comedy and drama for teens and young adults.
The company has previously won awards for its online sketches, predominantly under the direction of comedy producer Gina Lyons, and is currently best known for the animated CBBC series Dennis & Gnasher: Unleashed.
Its new development slate aims to "fully unleash the riotous, rebellious comedic power of Beano's character universe", with productions said to be geared towards broadcasters and streaming platforms across the globe.
Mark Talbot says: "Beano Studios is a rapidly growing global powerhouse with huge ambition to make smart, contemporary shows that people of all ages can enjoy. I plan to channel the rebellious Beano spirit to create top-quality shows to be proud of."
Scott adds: "Mark's vision, drive and great comedy bones will supercharge the development of Beano-inspired shows for the early teen and young adult audience, as well as our continued passion for both older kids' animation and digital-inspired entertainment shows."
