Holzman has partnered with long-time producing partner Aaron Saidman to launch The Intellectual Property Corporation (IPC).

The pair will lead the US-based firm, which has received backing from Sheldon Yellen of Belfor and Michael Rubin of Kynetic – both of whom featured on Emmy-winning show Undercover Boss, previously exec produced by Holzman. The third investor is David Adelman of Campus Apartment.

IPC will specialise in the creation, development and production of scripted and non-scripted TV, film, documentary and interactive mobile content for the US and international markets.

Holzman, who left All3Media in September last year, immediately started work with his team on projects with Mark Wahlberg and Stephen Levinson, Peter Berg and Film 45, and Shaquille O’Neal, among others. The new firm also has projects set up at NBC, HBO, AMC, History, E! and TLC.

“There has never been a more exciting time to be a content creator,” said Holzman, former head and co-founder of Miramax Television.

“There are more buyers than ever before, more ways to reach the audience and an almost limitless array of options to finance quality intellectual property.”

IPC has also hired former Endemol Shine USA exec Rachel Dax as head of production, ex-All3Media America staffer Andy Olymbiou as head of finance, Matt Zien as director of development and Steve Erdman as co-ordinator of development.

Holzman was previously president at Studio Lambert’s US arm, which was brought under the All3Media America umbrella.
