Producer worked on last 2 Schneider pix

HOLLYWOOD — In its first hire since moving into a film production deal with Paramount, Carsey-Werner-Mandabach has tapped veteran comedy producer and exec Carr D’Angelo as head of theatrical production.

D’Angelo will oversee all feature projects for CWM Films, the shingle created a month ago to co-produce comedies with Par via split financing.

“When we decided to form CWM Films, we knew we were going to need someone that shared our sensibilities when it came to developing projects that would be entertaining and had something to say,” said CWM partner Caryn Mandabach. “Carr is that person, and we are thrilled to have him join us as we take on this new and exciting venture.”

Boasts ‘Cosby,’ ‘Rock’

CWM is already Hollywood’s most successful self-financed TV producer with “The Cosby Show,” “Roseanne” and “3rd Rock From the Sun.” CWM execs have indicated they plans to develop character-driven comedies in the mid-price range, starring up-and-comers rather than A-listers.

D’Angelo has produced a pair of Rob Schneider comedies — Disney’s “The Hot Chick” for Happy Madison Prods. and Sony’s “The Animal” for Revolution. Before producing, Carr was a senior production and development exec at several companies, and he began his career at Universal, where he was VP of production and supervised “Happy Gilmore,” “Reality Bites,” “Billy Madison,” “Little Rascals” and “Leave It to Beaver.”

“This is a great opportunity to nurture comedy projects that are strong on character and story, especially with all the creative resources of CWM available,” said D’Angelo.
