EXCLUSIVE: TV producer/executive Jonathan Berry has joined 3 Arts Entertainment as a manager and producer based out of the company’s Los Angeles office. “Jon is excellent at identifying talent and developing material, and we feel he’ll be just as strong advancing careers,” said partner David Miner who has known Berry for awhile. Berry spent ten years at DreamWorks Television working on such series such as Spin City, Father of the Pride and Oliver Beene. For the past 2 years, he ran television for Bob Yari, developing shows for network and cable. He will continue to do so at 3 Arts where he will focus on the TV lit side. Berry said that, as an executive and producer, he always enjoyed working with writers. “In the back of my mind, I have always had a desire to work in management so I could work more closely with these talented individuals and be involved in their careers long-term,” he said, adding that, when he did make the decision to transition, 3 Arts was his “first choice of a home.”
