Berg-Saccani sounds off on Gluck series

Cyberbiz Briefs

Universal-based management production and Internet design outfit Berg-Saccani has sold a 20-episode Web series by scribe Will Gluck to Romp.com for six figures.

Untitled parody uses audio from real events, spoofing it by playing it over animation of an unrelated event. For example, in the first Webisode, former Indiana U. basketball coach Bobby Knight screaming at his team is played over animation of a crazed chemistry professor.

Berg-Saccani co-founder Damien Saccani discovered the short while surfing NewGrounds.com last month and e-mailed Gluck with the intention of turning the Webimation into an online series. Gluck is a writer and producer on Darren Star’s “Grosse Pointe.” He is repped by the Broder, Kurland, Webb, Uffner Agency.

Series will begin as a weekly two-minute strip but will turn into shorter daily segments in the coming months. A launch date has yet to be set for the series’ bow on Romp. Berg-Saccani will produce.

Berg-Saccani was founded by former Universal Pictures development execs Jon Berg and Saccani to focus on attracting projects involving young stars and directors, and modestly priced projects. Company, formed in January, has a first-look feature deal at Universal.
