Mandel inks at Disney TV

“Seinfeld” supervising producer David Mandel has inked a three-year $9 million overall deal with Walt Disney TV.

Mandel has worked on NBC’s top-rated sitcom, “Seinfeld,” since 1995, rising from writer-story editor to his current position. Mandel penned some of the sitcom’s most talked-about episodes, including “Bizarro World” and the recent backwards episode. He won a Writers Guild award for an episode called “The Pool Guy.”

Mandel will leave “Seinfeld” at the end of this season, and his deal to create, write and produce new projects for Disney begins in June.

“We think Dave Mandel is the perfect writer for our future because he is funny, literate and he loves TV,” said David Neuman, president of Walt Disney Network TV. “His work on ‘Seinfeld’ and ‘Saturday Night Live’ shows he has one of the most unique voices in TV today.”

Before “Seinfeld,” Mandel spent three years writing for the NBC sketch comedy show. In college, he wrote for the Harvard Lampoon, a favorite training ground for comedy scribes.

Mandel’s deal was brokered by David Neuman and Endeavor.
