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] The company went into hiatus when Hoberman left to join Hyde Park Entertainment, but was re-formed in 2002, this time with an exclusive 5-year contract with Walt Disney Studios.[2] 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.

Mandeville Films has an ongoing partnership with ABC, they renewed their contracts in July 2015, for two more years.[4]

In May 2018, Mandeville Films ended its partnership with Disney to sign with Universal Pictures for a "first-look production agreement".[5] However, Mandeville is still set to be co-producing several live-action films with Disney.[6][7][8]
