FremantleMedia North America has confirmed the hire of former GK-tv and Lionsgate drama exec Craig Cegielski and Playtone’s Stefanie Berk, as TBI reported earlier this week.
Cegielski becomes FMNA’s first executive VP, scripted programming and development after joining from his own company Open Circle Entertainment, while Berk will report into him as senior VP, scripted programming and development.
Cegielski’s appointment is effective immediately, while Berk, who was previous head of development at Tony Hanks’s prodco Playtone, begins on Monday.
“We’re thrilled to have these two wonderfully talented individuals join our team. Scripted programming is a huge priority for us and both Craig and Stefanie bring passion, great relationships and years of experience with them to FremantleMedia,” said FMNA CEO Thom Beers.
