Multimedia entertainment studio Electus has partnered with former co-CEO of Zoo Productions Barry Poznick to back the creation of a new television production company, Barracuda Television Productions.

The company will focus on developing and producing premium domestic and international unscripted programming. The company is based in Los Angeles.

Poznick has created and produced dozens of TV shows airing in more than 150 countries around the world including Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?, Buckwild and the No. 1 show on The Hub, Family Game Night. Additionally, Poznick has also hosted OWN’s Are You Normal, America?

"We're so pleased to partner with Barry in his new venture," said Electus CEO Chris Grant. "He is one of a kind and our combined talents and resources are absolutely ideal complements. As Electus continues to focus on high quality content for both the domestic and the global marketplace Barracuda was a must have for us."
