Lakeshore’s Tannebaum dies

Co-chair of entertainment group, law vet

Film producer Theodore “Ted” Tannebaum, co-chairman of Lakeshore Entertainment Group and a veteran of law, investment and finance, died Thursday at his home in Chicago. His age was not immediately available, and cause of death had not been confirmed.

“He was a great partner and a better friend,” said Tom Rosenberg, his partner and Lakeshore chairman, “and I will miss him always.”

With Rosenberg, Tannebaum executive produced movies that included this year’s Screen Gems release “The Mothman Prophecies” as well as Paramount Classics’ “The Gift” and “Passion of Mind”; Artisan’s “Autumn in New York,” and the Julia Roberts starrer “Runaway Bride.”

Prior to forming Lakeshore Entertainment with Tom Rosenberg, Tannebaum built Chicago HMO from $7 million in revenues in 1984 to $1 billion in 1994. In 1992, HMO America joined the New York Stock Exchange, with Tannebaum remaining as chairman of the board until the company’s merger with United HealthCare Corporation in 1993. He continued as consultant there until 1995.

He is survived by a daughter.
