Wind Dancer adds family unit

Shingle taps McFadzean to run new division

NEW YORK — Wind Dancer Prods. is expanding into family fare, tapping partner David McFadzean to run a division devoted to the category.

McFadzean, who was a writer and exec producer on TV sitcom “Home Improvement,” will develop between four and five family films per year, Wind Dancer said.

Shingle recently announced a $3 million development fund to concentrate on comedies and character-driven thrillers, developing its own as well as making outside acquisitions.

Company also hired Susann Brinkley to head development; she will work with McFadzean on the family-pic slate.

Wind Dancer, which produced “What Women Want,” has a background in family comedies; partner Matt Williams was involved with “Roseanne,” “The Cosby Show” and other hit sitcoms.
