Eric Berger, who oversaw Sony’s Crackle streaming platform prior to its 2019 sale, is getting back into the AVOD business.

For his first project since leaving Sony this summer to become CEO of Common Sense Networks, Berger will be launching Sensical—a free, ad-supported streaming platform for kids 2-12—early next year.

The platform will roll out with 15,000 short-form videos, all of which will have been vetted by people trained in child development to ensure that the content is consistent with parent company Common Sense Media’s guidelines.
