In the role, he will lead worldwide sales on series such as Warren Buffett’s Secret Millionaires Club, Baby Genius, Stan Lee’s Mighty 7, and Thomas Edison’s Secret Lab.
Berman, a former IDT Entertainment exec, exited FremantleMedia last year, and then re-emerged at MIPTV in April selling a kids yoga series for Veria Living Studios.
At Genius, he will take up a newly-formed post, reporting to chairman and CEO Andy Heyward, and be based in LA. His hire also represents the launch of a global distribution business for Genius.
Genius Brands International is the merged assets of Heyward and Amy Moynihan Heyward’s A Squared Entertainment and Genius Brands, which is behind the Baby Genius franchise.
