HistoryEdit

Film executive David Hoberman founded Mandeville Films in January 1995 as he exited Walt Disney Studios with a five-year, multi-picture production deal.[3]

In 1999, Hoberman hired Ashok Amritraj, who was an employee of Franchise Pictures, joined the company, renaming it to Hyde Park Entertainment, which will be a film financer and producer.[4] The Hyde Park company will split deals with Walt Disney Studios and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.[5]

In 2002, Amritaj and Hoberman split their ties, and Hoberman itself reformed Mandeville Films with an exclusive five-year contract with Walt Disney Studios.[2][6] Hoberman brought along fellow producer Todd Lieberman as a partner, who worked with Hoberman when he was senior vice president for international finance at Hyde Park Entertainment.

When Mandeville Films returned to the studios, it was scheduled to produce 2 movies each for Touchstone and MGM: Walking Tall, Raising Helen, The Last Shot, and Beauty Shop. The studio itself went back to Disney in 2006 to co-produce Eight Below and The Shaggy Dog back-to-back.[citation needed]

Mandeville Films has an ongoing partnership with ABC, they renewed their contracts in July 2015, for two more years.[7]

In May 2018, Mandeville Films ended its partnership with Disney to sign with Universal Pictures for a "first-look production agreement".[8] However, Mandeville is still set to be co-producing several live-action films with Disney.[9][10][11]
