Veteran TV executive David Gerber will merge his production operation into All American Communications, in the process becoming president of All American TV Production.

Sources said that in conjunction with the move Syd Vinnedge, who previously held that position at the production unit, likely will head a separate, yet-to-be-formed division overseeing such existing All American properties as “Baywatch” and its spinoff, “Baywatch Nights.”

Meanwhile, Gerber will bring with him a number of projects in development initiated under his partnership with ITC Entertainment , Gerber /ITC Prods., and will seek to expand All American’s production presence in network programming in addition to firstrun and other areas.

As an independent producer, Gerber was responsible for such series as “Police Story” and “Police Woman” before becoming the head of Columbia Pictures TV in the late 1970s.
