Two of the television industry’s biggest names are forming a company to produce TV programs, movies and Internet entertainment, according to four people familiar with the plan.
Gail Berman, who stepped down this month as president of Paramount Pictures, is teaming up with the person who recommended her for that job two years ago: Lloyd Braun, the former ABC Entertainment chairman who until December was head of Yahoo Inc.’s media group.
BermanBraun, their new venture, initially will focus on TV production, the Internet and movies, the sources said.
The pair eventually will expand into producing stage productions and video games.Advertisements
