Founded by Barry Poznick ( ZOO Productions/ALL3MEDIA), BARRACUDA has teamed up with Electus in September 2013 with a focus on formats with a global appeal. Poznick’s shows have received Emmy Nominations (FOX’s ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5TH GRADER? and HUB’s FAMILY GAME NIGHT) and he earned a spot on the Hollywood Reporter’s Reality Power List, twice. Other shows he created and executive produced include MTV’s BUCKWILD, SPIKE’s WORLD’S WORST TENANTS, DISNEY’s PRANKSTARS, NBC’s IT’S WORTH WHAT?, GSN’s LINGO, TRU’s SPEEDERS and SOUTHERN FRIED STINGS. Then, in 2012 while developing a game show with Oprah Winfrey, Poznick’s career took a slight left-turn when Oprah said she wanted him to HOST the show. His 12 episode stint as host of OWN’s “ARE YOU NORMAL, AMERICA?” gave him a new perspective on production. Poznick has also taken a special interest in merchandising, marketing and integrations, merging business messaging with creative formats, resulting in brand-sponsored programming, like the Turbo Tax’s CELEBRITY TREASURE HUNT for NBC and P&G’s LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL: The Bunco World-Championship for Lifetime.
The first series from BARRACUDA to hit the air was a partnership with Mark Burnett’s ONE THREE MEDIA called TRUST ME, I’M A GAME SHOW HOST. The comedy/game hybrid premiered in October 2013 on TBS. Barry also served as EP on Season 3 of GSN’s THE AMERICAN BIBLE CHALLENGE with Jeff Foxworthy, the new re-boot of ABC’s TO TELL THE TRUTH, and the new season of ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5th GRADER? premiered May 2015 on FOX.
BARRACUDA has sold a number of projects including SEX IN PUBLIC and DECK THE HALLS WITH DR. CHRISTMAS to TLC, WINSANITY to GSN, HOLLYWOOD IQ to Debmar, FLIPPING WITH THE STARS to E!, SELLIN’ DOWN SOUTH to CMT, THAT OR THIS to Nickelodeon, SISTERS IN LAW to Telepictures, and HOT GRITS to VH1.
