Meghan McCarthy, a name that most ponies are familiar with when it comes to our favorite show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is going from Executive Producer over the series to Head of Storytelling for Hasbro’s Girl brands. McCarthy will start to work immediately on other Hasbro mainstays as Little Pet Show, as well as the Pony spin-off, Equestria Girls.
