Background

Panda Productions was the vanity card of Leonard J. Goldberg (who previously had Mandy Films as a vanity plate and was a partner with Aaron Spelling in Spelling-Goldberg Productions) on Blue Bloods and Critical Assembly. It has since been renamed to The Leonard Goldberg Company after his untimely death on December 4, 2019, at the age of 85.
