Mandabach lures Springborn from Valhalla

Film exec will develop TV content for global auds

LONDON — Caryn Mandabach Prods., the U.S. producer’s U.K. shingle, has tapped Beatrice Springborn to develop genre- and book-based series that can be set up worldwide.

Springborn was previously exec VP of production and development at Gale Anne Hurd’s Valhalla Motion Pictures.

Mandabach, whose Stateside credits include “Nurse Jackie,” “3rd Rock From the Sun,” “Roseanne” and “The Cosby Show,” said: “Beatrice has a background in putting together financing for independent features. What is exciting to me about that is that television is becoming increasingly like the independent feature model, in so far as no network is going to fully fund anymore, especially at the high end. So it is very important that we make friends in the financial community.”

Before joining Valhalla, Springborn was production VP for FilmNation Entertainment, where she produced “House at the End of the Street” and worked on “The Raven” and “F*cking Engaged.”

She also worked for Raygun Prods., where she developed “The Prestige,” “Hamlet 2” and “The TV Set,” and produced “My One and Only.”

Mandabach has been based in the U.K. for seven years, producing a number of local series. These include a family sitcom for the BBC, “In With the Flynns,” which was created by Simon Nye, her colleague on the U.S. version of his 1990s sitcom “Men Behaving Badly.”

Mandabach’s period gangster drama “Peaky Blinders,” produced with Tiger Aspect, is now lensing. Footage from the six-part miniseries will debut at TV mart Mipcom in Cannes next week, where distrib Endemol will kick off international sales. The show, greenlit by the BBC, stars Sam Neill and Cillian Murphy.

Mandabach continues to produce shows in the U.S. As well as “Nurse Jackie,” which Showtime reupped for a fifth season in May, Mandabach has projects in development with networks and cablers, including Fox and HBO.
