Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

TV and feature production executive Jane Rosenthal turned mini-mogul in 1988 when she co-founded TriBeCa Films with actor-cum-auteur Robert De Niro. Housed in De Niro's Tribeca Film Center in NYC, this production company has turned out a steady stream of distinctive films, beginning with its initial release, Martin Scorsese's "Cape Fear" (1991), and followed quickly by Barry Primus' directorial debut, "Mistress", Michael Apted's "Thunderheart" and Irwin Winkler's "Night and the City" (all 1992), the latter two produced by Rosenthal. Since then, producing partners De Niro and Rosenthal have put forward De Niro's directorial debut "A Bronx Tale" (1993), Paul Mazursky's "Faithful", Jerry Zaks' feature directorial debut "Marvin's Room" (both 1996) and Barry Levinson's "Wag the Dog" (1997). TriBeCa Films branched into TV production with the dramatic anthology series "Tribeca" (Fox, 1993) and also begat the NBC miniseries "Witness to the Mob" (1998), the Sammy Gravano story, starring Nicholas Turturro in the leading role. Rosenthal served as an executive producer for both projects.

Notes

"When we started Tribeca [studios] it was clearly to do movies in which Bob [De Niro] could serve in a variety of capacities," Rosenthal said in a recent phone interview. "But when you look at the New York film community, there is so much talent here that TV was a natural extension.

She says that when she and De Niro got the pitch from a West Coast producer, David Burke, for "Tribeca," the response was, "God, we have to do this, of course. These were short stories for TV, little movies unto themselves where we could utilize talent in New York, and not only the actors and writers, but crews as well." --From "Street Stories of `Tribeca'" by Verne Gay, NEWSDAY, March 21, 1993
