Though not as well known to audiences as the major stars he worked with, producer David Hoberman was responsible for delivering many popular films to theaters. Born in California in 1952, Hoberman's father was radio executive Ben Hoberman. Hoberman took an entry level job in the mailroom at ABC almost as soon as he could work. He eventually moved up to a position at Norman Lear's company, Tandem Productions, before beginning his career as an executive as an executive at Walt Disney Studios in 1985. There, Hoberman was responsible for helping numerous films hit theaters, including "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" (1988), "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" (1989), and "What About Bob?" (1991). In 1995, Hoberman co-founded his own independent production company, Mandeville Films, which eventually re-formed within Disney Studios. Hoberman soon began taking a hands-on role in producing films and TV shows, notably co-creating the hit mystery-comedy series "Monk" (USA, 2002-09). He would go on to produce hits like "Walking Tall" (2004), "Beverly Hills Chihuahua" (2008), and the Academy Award winning "The Fighter" (2010). Additionally, Hoberman executive produced the young adult sci-fi film "Insurgent" (2015) and produced Bill Condon's live action adaptation "Beauty and the Beast" (2017).
