Teri hatches new venture

'Housewife' taps Glassman senior VP at ISBE

Teri Hatcher isn’t desperate for work.

The “Desperate Housewives” star has launched her own production shingle, ISBE Prods. and has hired Jennifer Glassman as senior veep. The pair will develop projects for TV, film and multimedia and handle business ventures including endorsements and book deals.

She’s also joined the cast of Rod Lurie’s “Resurrecting the Champ,” alongside Josh Hartnett and Samuel L. Jackson.

Bob Yari, Mike Medavoy, Brad Fischer, Arnold Messer and Marc Frydman are producing that drama, about a reporter who seeks out a former famed fighter only to find out that the man isn’t who he claims to be. Shooting starts July 17 in Canada.

As for her production shingle, Hatcher tells Daily Variety that she gave the company the ISBE moniker because, “It’s the idea of what ‘is’ and what can ‘be.’ I’ve had many ideas in filing cabinets for years and feel lucky to now have the opportunity to realize them.”

Company recently oversaw the launch of her bestselling book, “Burnt Toast and Other Philosophies of Life” and the creation of the accompanying Web site. ISBE is developing TV projects including “Burnt Toast: The Series,” an adult animated series and reality programming. On the film side, ISBE is eyeing romantic comedy and horror genres.

Glassman joins ISBE as senior veep of production, development and branding, after overseeing corporate relations for Paradigm from 2003-06. Prior to that, she ran her own marketing, branding and PR shingle. She also worked at New Line Cinema, heading the international PR department. “I’m confident that Jennifer can be the closer to my many ideas,” Hatcher said of Glassman. “I needed someone who can help me get projects across the finish line.”

Hatcher recently signed on to voice a character in the 3-D stop-motion animated project “Coraline” for Focus Features and Laika Ent.
