Talent agent Chris Dennis has joined management/production company Underground as a manager. For the past five years, Dennis was at Paradigm as a talent agent. Because of his switch from agenting to management, it is unclear which clients will follow him to Underground. “The hardest thing about growing a company is finding the right people to bring into the fold,” said Underground’s Trevor Engelson. “With Chris we’ve found the perfect fit for us, a true hustler with a gigantic future over here at Underground.” Best known for its literary business, Underground has been working on building its talent side over the past couple of years. Dennis joins managers Engelson, Evan Silverberg and Josh Turner McGuire in the LA office and Noah Rothman who recently joined the company’s NYC office.
