WME literary agent Julie Weitz is joining Carol Mendelsohn’s CBS TV Studios-based production company as president.
For the past 6 years, she was an agent at Endeavor and then WME. She joined Endeavor in 2004 when the agency launched a movies-for-television division and tapped Weitz to run it. Prior to that, Weitz served as EVP of original programming for TNT, where she was responsible for the supervision of development and production of original movies, mini-series, series and reality series. Weitz started her agency career in 1992 at ICM, where she headed the longform television packaging department. Before joining ICM, Weitz served as both the president of von Zerneck-Sertner Films and director of development for Hearst Entertainment.
