DIABLO ENTERTAINMENT was formed in 2014 with the sole purpose of developing, financing, and producing character-driven, high concept genre films. No stranger to green lighting first-time filmmakers, Diablo has built a reputation for going against the norm in Hollywood by choosing projects that encompass a bold, stylistic and truly original concept that challenges not only how stories are told, but how films are produced. With a keen eye focused on ushering in the new wave of young Hollywood talent both in front of and behind the camera, Diablo's mission is to change the way the entertainment industry views independent productions by coupling commercially viable ideas with unconventional budgets to allow for greater profits and quality films. Diablo is run by its' two producers/founders: Eric B. Fleischman and Sean Tabibian.
FLEISCHMAN was born in Washington, D.C. and raised in Maryland. A product of the University of Southern California's undergraduate film production program, his curiosity led him to Paramount's (at the time) newly-founded Insurge division before being told of another (at the time) up-and-coming producer on the Paramount lot: Jason Blum. Upon graduating, Fleischman began working at Blum’s Blumhouse Productions, intent on finding a way to employ the micro-budget horror model for genre films in the independent space. After being a part of eight feature films under the Blum banner , Fleischman ventured out to produce independently. With the knowledge of how to turn high-concept low-budget films into massive box office successes, Fleischman raised private equity and began producing edgy, bold and unconventional genre films. Fleischman has independently produced fifteen feature films in the past four years, including Sundance 2016's CARNAGE PARK and SLEIGHT and 2017's TriBeCa's FLOWER.
TABIBIAN was born in Dallas and raised in Los Angeles, Tabibian spent 16 years as a criminal defense attorney, formal prosecutor, and Judge Pro Tem. He is a serial entrepreneur: a seasoned real estate developer and a consultant to Biotech firms as well as several public entities. While developing these projects and working as an attorney, he attended the UCLA School of Theater, Film, and Television and earned a degree in Producing. He has served as a technical consultant for several major television shows, and is currently producing multiple feature films.
