Berman to tackle childhood obesity

Children’s TV veteran Andrew Berman has resurfaced with US lifestyle content distributor Veria Living Worldwide after leaving FremantleMedia last year.

Berman’s role at Veria will be to lead sales of Yogapalooza (52×30′), a live-action series designed to fight the global problem of child obesity.

The series, which encourages kids to do yoga, was produced in New York by Veria Living Studios and also heralds Veira Living Worldwide’s entry into children’s programming.

Berman left his role at VP of distribution, children’s programming and family entertainment at FremantleMedia in September last year, having joined in 2011.

While there, he was instrumental in the international success of FremantleMedia’s preschool show Tree Fu Tom, said Veria Living Worldwide.

He has also worked at Sega’s Japanese animation subsidiary TMS Entertainment and IDT Entertainment, now known as Starz Media, during his 25 years in the TV business.

“Today, children’s obesity is a problem that’s impacting families all over the world. In that light, the timing is perfect for Yogapalooza to enter the market,” Berman said.
