EXCLUSIVE: Dianne McGunigle, who for the past decade has been an agent in CAA‘s comedy department in New York, is leaving the agency. She will move to Los Angeles to become a manager at The Schiff Company. McGunigle has worked with such clients as Donald Glover, Aubrey Plaza, Adam Pally, Jemima Kirke, and Abby Elliott, among others. She was hired by David Schiff, who told Deadline that she “has an accomplished track record for having nurtured the careers of uniquely talented comedic writers, actors and performers, many of whom Dianne was among the first to discover. We are really excited that Dianne has chosen us as her landing spot to transition to management where we know she will have great success.”
McGunigle will relocate and start the new job in early May.
