Freedman to develop for Ted Harbert TV

Exec to help seek out talent, share creative oversight

Kristy Freedman has been tapped director of development for 20th Century Fox TV-based Ted Harbert Television.

Move reps a career shift for Freedman, who most recently served as an account supervisor at praisery Baker Winokur Ryder. In her new gig, she’ll work with Harbert to seek out talent, work with scribes and share creative oversight of pilots and series developed by the new shingle.

Harbert said he was introduced to Freedman about six weeks ago by their common reps at CAA and was instantly impressed.

“This woman has an encyclopedic knowledge of television,” he said, citing Freedman’s ability to cite the title “of every episode of ‘Will & Grace.’ ”

“She’s so incredibly intelligent and passionate about programming, it was clear to me that this is someone who deserves to be in development,” Harbert added.

While at BWR, Freedman worked on the PR launches of skeins such as “AUSA,” “Dark Angel” and “John Doe,” as well as the Oxygen cabler. She had previously worked for praiseries such as Bender, Goldman and Helper and Stan Rosenfield and Associates.

Harbert recently inked a two-year overall deal at 20th to develop series under his self-titled banner. Shingle already has script commitments from NBC, CBS and the WB (Daily Variety, July 16).
