Todd Darren Lieberman (born February 20, 1973)[1] is an American film and television producer. He co-founded Mandeville Films and Television with David Hoberman in 2002.[2] Mandeville has produced several notable films, including The Fighter, which won two Academy Awards in 2010, and for which Lieberman was nominated for the Oscar for Best Picture.[3]

Early life[edit]

Todd was born to a Jewish family[4] in Cleveland, and grew up in Lyndhurst and Pepper Pike, Ohio. He graduated from Hawken School.[5] and the University of Pennsylvania. There he was a member of the Mask and Wig Club. He is from a Jewish family.[6] He performed with local theatre groups in Ohio before college where he continued to perform, then moving to Los Angeles in 1995. He began there with acting and then moved on to writing, reviewing film scripts, then on to directing and producing.[5] He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1995 where he was a member of the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity and The Mask and Wig Club.[7][8]


Lieberman was Senior Vice President for International Finance at the production company Hyde Park Entertainment, which produced and co-financed films such as Anti-Trust, Bandits and Moonlight Mile. Lieberman established himself at the international sales and distribution company Summit Entertainment, where he progressed thanks to championing the independent film Memento and acquiring the rights to American Pie.[9]

In 1999, Lieberman was hired by David Hoberman to work for Mandeville Films.[10] After a short hiatus, the two re-formed the production company as Mandeville Films and Television in 2002, with both serving as co-owners and company partners.[11] In 2001, he was named one of the "35 under 35" people to watch in the business by The Hollywood Reporter.[12]
