King World taps Perry senior VP

King World Prods. has named syndication packaging agent Sean E. Perry senior vice president of development, reporting to Andy Friendly, executive VP of programming and production.

Perry joins King World from Los Angeles talent agency Abrams-Rubaloff & Lawrence, where his clients have included Dick Clark, Bob Goen, “Weird” Al Yankovic and Terry Murphy, and where he packaged series such as Twentieth TV’s “Real Stories of the Highway Patrol.”

Perry is the sixth executive added to King World’s development team this year. In addition to Friendly, he joins Marc Rosenweig, VP of programming and production on the East Coast; Rich Cervini, director of technical operations; Steve Nalevansky, senior VP of programming and production on the West Coast; and Steve Friedman, VP of international programming.

Friendly said the hire is a sign of King World’s expansion beyond syndication into areas such as cable, the network business and international programming.

Meanwhile, King World Intl. and Sino Universal Intl., in association with China Central TV Intl. TV Corp., reached an agreement Friday to syndicate “The Little Rascals” to Chinese TV. The project was launched at Mip Asia in Hong Kong. The show is being sold for barter.
