Shingle has set up projects with Disney, ABC
Mandeville isn’t planning on turning off the tube when “Monk” ends its run on USA Network this month.Looking to get its next TV project on the air, the shingle’s David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman have set up six projects at ABC and the Disney Channel. The Alphabet, where Mandeville has a first-look deal with ABC Studios, has picked up five projects:
- “Kegs,” from feature scribes Jason Filardi (“17 Again,” “Bringing Down the House”) and Mark Perez (“Accepted”), a workplace comedy about a family that runs a beer distribution biz. Bob Kushell (“Samantha Who?”), would serve as a supervising producer;
- “Tarrytown,” which R. Lee Fleming (“One Tree Hill”) is penning about an uptight single mom who moves in with her estranged younger brother and his daughter after they inherit their deadbeat father’s rundown house in the upscale suburb of Tarrytown, Texas;
- The docu-style “1-8-7 Detroit,” from scribe Jason Richman (“Swing Vote”) about detectives in the homicide capital of the U.S.;
- “Dorchester Heights,” from Nikki Toscano (“Las Vegas”), about five best friends in South Boston whose bond is threatened when secrets emerge after a close friend dies;
- And an untitled drama from Joy Gregory (“Joan of Arcadia,” “Jericho”) about a 40-year-old man who starts to live life as a 20-year-old when he sustains a head injury.
