Berger bags gig at Basic

Exec is expecting second child

Lisa Berger, who formerly served as exec VP of Fox Alternative Studios, has made an early departure from her producing deal at Basic Elements.

The spokesman also said that Berger’s work on “North Shore,” the first Basic Elements show to get up and running, is complete.
