Vet slides into exec veep slot

Matt Loze has been named to the new position of executive vice president of drama, longform and international TV for the North American Prods. arm of Pearson Television.

Loze will head Pearson’s U.S. development, but with an eye toward finding properties with international appeal as well. Pearson recently acquired All American Inc., and Loze will be responsible for developing and producing dramas, comedies, longform and syndicated programming, except game shows, reality-based series and “Baywatch.”

In order to coordinate the domestic and international programming, Loze will report to Tony Cohen, president of Pearson’s North American Prods., and Brian Harris, managing director of Pearson TV International. Loze currently oversees Francis Ford Coppola’s new series “First Wave,” which is in production in Vancouver.

Jamie Bennett in London will continue to head international development as chief executive of Pearson TV Worldwide Prods.

Loze joined Pearson in 1997 from Trilogy Entertainment Group, where he was vice president of TV, responsible for production of “The Outer Limits” and “Poltergeist: The Legacy.” He also previously worked for Propaganda Films.
