Tom Mazza, Dan Angel Set Family-Friendly Banner with Financier Larrikin

TV vets Tom Mazza and Dan Angel have launched a family-friendly content shingle in partnership with Larrikin Entertainment, the production financing venture headed by Greg Coote and David Calvert-Jones.

Los Angeles-based EveryWhere Studios aims to produce programs designed for multi-generational viewing for multiple platforms. Coote and Calvert-Jones launched Larrikin in 2012 and is in the midst of pulling together two production funding ventures.

“We have seen a significant surge in the demand for family-friendly content. I’m thrilled to be launching EveryWhere Studios with Dan and Tom to meet this need as their expertise and vast experience in the family-friendly sector will be a tremendous asset,” Calvert-Jones said.

Mazza (pictured left) is launching the startup after spending the past two years with the U.S. arm of Canada’s Shaftesbury Films. He’s also held senior exec posts with Paramount TV and Sony Pictures TV. Angel (pictured right) is writer-producer with credits ranging from the TNT telepic “Door to Door” to kidvid fare including “Goosebumps” and “R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour.”

Mazza serves as CEO while Angel is chief creative officer. The pair are in the process of setting their first production and distribution pacts.

“In a world where TV is everywhere, Everywhere Studios is designed to deliver high quality programming to audiences ‘everywhere’ via television, computer, tablet, or phone,” said Mazza. Angel added that the goal was to “bridge the gap” in family viewing options.

Coote is a major player in film finance, having previously headed Dune Entertainment, which helped fund more than 60 20th Century Fox features.

Coote and Calvert-Jones announced the creation late last year of a $50 million production fund dubbed Catalina Capital and struck a first-look distribution pact with the Weinstein Co.
