Random House Television Launched

FremantleMedia and Random House, two companies owned by the Bertelsmann AG media conglomerate, have teamed up to create Random House Television. The new entity will focus on creating and developing television content from Random House books.

Here’s more from the release: “The first-look deal with FremantleMedia will reside within Random House Television, a newly created part of Random House Studio, the publisher’s rebranded and expanded entertainment division led by Peter Gethers, President. Random House Television will work together with Random House’s editors and publishers, and their authors’ agents, to identify and acquire performance rights for the full range of broadcast network, cable, and premium television scripted formats. The partnership will also seek to collaborate with Random House authors to develop original scripted television properties they might create.”

Jeffrey Levine will be the new head of television for Random House Television, working out of FremantleMedia’s Los Angeles offices, reporting to Gethers. FremantleMedia Enterprises senior VP of global content Jeff Tahler and FremantleMedia North America senior VP of scripted programming Tony Optican will also work with Levine.
