Andryc upped to exec VP of Fox kidvid

Exec expands to o'see live-action, animated series development

Veteran kidvid programmer Joel Andryc has been upped to executive VP of kids programming and development for Fox Family Channel and Fox Kids Network.

Andryc, who had been in charge of development of daytime programming for Fox Family, will now expand his responsibilities to include oversight of live-action and animated series development for Fox Kids Network, the broadcast arm of the Fox Kids empire. Move is a further attempt by Fox Kids to consolidate the development process.

“Joel has a proven track record of creating dynamic, original programs that appeal to kids of all ages,” said Rich Cronin, Fox Family Channels and Fox Kids Network prexy and CEO. “By working closely with (Fox Family Channel exec VP of programming and development) Rob Sorcher and (Fox Kids Network G.M.) Maureen Smith, Joel will bring a synergy to all of the children’s programming on Fox Family Channel and Fox Kids Network.”

Andryc will report to Sorcher.

Despite the consolidation, Andryc said Fox Family Channel and Fox Kids will continue to have different programming philosophies.

“The brand identities for Fox Family Channel and Fox Kids are distinctly different, and I look forward to developing unique programming for each network,” he said.

Andryc has been involved with the development of several Fox Family hits, including the Emmy-nominated “Angela Anaconda” and “S Club 7.”

Before joining Fox Family, Andryc was based at Saban Entertainment, which he joined in 1987. As director of development for firstrun syndication, Andryc created with John Candy the Humanitas Prize-winning toon skein “Camp Candy.”
