Todd Lieberman, co-owner of Mandeville Films and producer of movies including 2017’s “Beauty and the Beast,” “The Proposal,” “The Fighter,” “The Muppets,” and “Beverly Hills Chihuahua,” explores the realities of the film industry and its overall response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  

At the start of 2020, Lieberman looked forward to starting five separate projects – three movies and two television series. By spring, all were entirely shut down, a combined 30 years of work stripped away due to the devastating impact of the global pandemic. In this episode, Lieberman advises those whose careers were upended due to COVID-19, and shares how he and his teams were able to creatively overcome the obstacles presented throughout 2020 and 2021.
