Inside Move: Werner may piece together Mosaic deal

Exec in talks with Gold, Miller about new prod'n entity

With Carsey-Werner getting out of the active TV production business, company partner Tom Werner is inching closer toward identifying his next entertainment venture.

Werner is said to be in discussions with Mosaic Media’s Eric Gold and Jimmy Miller about forging a production entity — although insiders stress that nothing’s close to being finalized and that Werner could be exploring several different business opportunities.

Should a deal with Mosaic go forward, it’s unclear how a new entity would be structured. It’s believed the alliance would be set up at a network; at least one web, NBC, may have already been approached.

Mandalay TV merged with Mosaic’s television interests in August, after Mandalay Entertainment bought out CDP Capital Entertainment’s stake in Dick Clark Prods. Allen Shapiro heads up Mandalay Mosaic Television Group, which produces several of TV’s main events — including the Golden Globes, American Music Awards and “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” — through its Dick Clark Prods. franchise.

Werner has been mulling ventures following Carsey-Werner’s recent decision to not move forward with any new television production (Daily Variety, June 24). Carsey-Werner continues to operate a massive distribution library and a feature arm, and still produces “That ’70s Show” for Fox.
