Lakeshore Entertainment Launches TV Division Headed by Chad Hoffman

Hoffman sees TV potential in Lakeshore's library of film titles

Lakeshore Entertainment, the shingle behind films including “Million Dollar Baby” and “The Lincoln Lawyer,” is branching out to the small screen with the creation of a TV arm.

ABC and Hearst Entertainment vet Chad Hoffman will oversee the new division.

Lakeshore has already placed a few flags in the television space, selling a Sebastian Maniscalco project to NBC through Sony Pictures TV, and pilot “Blanco” to Cinemax with Fox TV studios. The indie production company noted that it brings “significant financing ability to the table,” as well.

“We will build on our successful feature formula of developing, financing, producing and owning carefully selected projects,” Lakeshore’s Chairman and CEO Tom Rosenberg said.  “Being able to get quality projects made independently is one of the hallmarks of Lakeshore and we will expand that to television.”

Hoffman stated that he plans to sort through Lakeshore’s feature film library to find properties with TV series potential.
