Fox Entertainment President Gail Berman will receive the Executive of the Year Award from the Caucus for Television Producers, Writers & Directors, the caucus announced Monday.

Ms. Berman oversees Fox program development and scheduling, as well as marketing, business affairs and promotions. Commenting on the selection, caucus chair Vin Di Bona said Berman is the first-ever series producer to hold the top Fox programming post.

Ms. Berman assumed her current role in July 2000, after serving more than two years as founding president of Regency Television. There she developed “Malcolm in the Middle” for Fox and served as executive producer on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and its spinoff, “Angel,” which just completed its fifth and final season.

Earlier, Ms. Berman served as president and CEO of production company Sandollar Television, where she was executive producer on the ABC prime-time series “All American Girl,” NBC’s comedy “Someone Like Me” and the Cable ACE Award-nominated special, “HBO Presents Hazelle.”

Ms. Berman will receive the award at the caucus’ annual black tie gala Jan. 13 at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Other honorees include TelevisionWeek Editor Alex Ben Block, who will receive the 2005 Journalism Award; writer/producer Tom Fontana, who will receive a lifetime achievement award; and writer/producer Greg Strangis, who will receive an award for distinguished service to the caucus.
