Former Planet 3 Entertainment Group veepee of development Howard Barish announced Wednesday the formation of Kandoo Films, Inc., a TV movie and low-budget feature company.
Based at Planet 3’s offices in Santa Monica, Kandoo Films will initially develop the Malibu cult-classic “Stealth Force.”
Malibu is one of the more aggressive comic companies, having set up the potential UFO franchise “Men in Black” with Columbia Pictures executive veepee Barry Josephson and the sexy male/female superhero team “Cat & Mouse” at 20th Century Fox.
Kandoo is represented by Lee Dinstman, Agency for the Performing Arts VP and literary agent.
Barish’s credentials include work as senior staff producer of the on-air promo company Directions Intl. Inc. and producer of CBS’ campaign for the new David Letterman show.
