Producer paints new shingle

D'Angelo's co. to focus on feature, TV projects

HOLLYWOOD — Carr D’Angelo, head of theatrical production for Carsey-Werner-Mandabach Films, is leaving the company to pursue his own producing projects by forming Unpainted Pictures with spouse and screenwriter Susan Avallone.

CWM tapped the veteran comedy producer and exec in January 2003 to oversee all feature projects for CWM Films, which had been created a month before to co-produce comedies with Paramount via split financing. CWM is seeking a replacement.

He’ll remain attached as exec producer to the projects he developed while at CWM, including a wedding project being written by Steve Mazur and a dance parody project written by Phil Beauman.

Unpainted, which will focus on feature and TV projects, has sold family comedy “Opposite Day” to the Disney Channel. It has also optioned nonfiction book “The Amazing Story of the Tonelli Family in America,” by Bill Tonelli, to develop as a feature; Avallone is writing the script. The duo are also packaging “Rosaline,” a script based on an idea by D’Angelo and written by Keith & Juliet Giglio.

D’Angelo served as producer on Rob Schneider comedies “The Hot Chick” for Disney and “The Animal” for Sony/Revolution in association with Adam Sandler and Jack Giarraputo’s Happy Madison Prods. He also set up “The Do-Over” at SpyGlass/Disney, based on his idea and written by Dean Lorey. D’Angelo was also a senior production and development executive for Universal Studios, Broadway Video and Handprint Entertainment.

Avallone previously optioned her screenplay “Suicide Bride” to Universal with producer Cari-Esta Albert.
