Former Studio Lambert and All3Media America president Eli Holzman has launched an independent production company with his long-time producing partner Aaron Saidman.

Based in Culver City, the Intellectual Property Corporation (IPC) will produce television, feature film and mobile content and is backed by three private equity investors.

Two of the investors – Belfor’s Sheldon Yellen and Kynetic’s Michael Rubin – appeared on the Holzman-exec produced reality hit Undercover Boss. The third is entrepreneur David Adelman of Campus Apartments.

IPC will focus on producing scripted and unscripted TV, documentary and interactive mobile content for the U.S. and international markets. It has partnered on projects with Mark Wahlberg and Stephen Levison, Peter Berg and Film 45 and Shaquille O’Neal, and is working with networks such as NBC, HBO, History, AMC, TLC and E!

Holzman’s title is CEO and Saidman serves as president. The IPC team also includes head of production Rachel Dax, formerly of Endemol Shine USA; head of finance Andy Olymbiou, formerly an All3Media America exec; director of development Matt Zien; and coordinator of development Steve Erdman.

Holzman started his career at Miramax Films and later founded the company’s television department where he co-created the doc series Project Greenlight and created the reality hit Project Runway. In 2008, he started the U.S. arm of British producer Studio Lambert and launched Undercover Boss. Five years later, All3Media acquired the shop and renamed it All3Media America with Holzman serving as president.

IPC is repped by WME and McKuin Frankel Whitehead.
