About Us. 

Baby Lion Studios is an independent production company based out of Austin, Texas founded by Stephanie Thoreson and Adam Protextor. We're focused on creating content that represents the comedy and Hip Hop communities we belong to and the artists and pop culture we love.



Baby Lion Studios is teaming up with an all-star roster of some of the biggest names in Austin comedy and film to create the new sitcom project Wind-Ups. Based on the 4 years showrunner Adam Protextor spent working at the iconic local institution Toy Joy (also the primary filming location for the show), Wind-Ups follows a cast of six core characters as they navigate interpersonal relationships, growing older, and figuring out what comes next, all while working at an independent toy store. Breaking traditional structure, Wind-Ups’ season 1 arc is told over six episodes, each set on a different major holiday over the course of one calendar year. Wind-Ups is currently running an Indiegogo campaign to help fund production on the series, which is slated to film in February 2020. Join our collective and help bring this show to life!

Written by Stephanie Thoreson, Ashlee Jordan Pryor-Pitluk, Adam Protextor, Nathan Sowell, and Devon Coleman

Starring Kenah Benefield, Ryan Darbonne, Haley Alea Erickson, Yamina Khouane, Adam Protextor, and Stephanie Thoreson
