Former Carsey-Werner-Mandabach partner and comedy producer Caryn Mandabach has signed a development deal with British broadcaster BBC.

Ms. Mandabach will develop five comedy scripts for BBC and set up a United Kingdom-based production company, Caryn Mandabach Productions. Ms. Mandabach’s company will retain complete ownership of all projects and their respective formats.

Working directly with the BBC’s head of comedy commissioning, Mark Freeland, Ms. Mandabach already has one script in development with writer Simon Nye (“Men Behaving Badly”).

Since Ms. Mandabach left Carsey-Werner-Mandabach in August, she has sold a script to HBO written by Maya Forbes (“The Larry Sanders Show”) and co-writer and performer Catherine Tate. Additionally, Ms. Mandabach is working on a project for FX.
