Nicole Clemens is leaving her post as EVP of Series Development for FX Networks to join Anonymous Content as Manager and Producer. For Clemens, who will focus on talent management and film and TV production, this marks a return to the representation side of the business — she was a lit agent at ICM Partners for 16 years and Head of the agency’s Motion Picture Literary department before she left in 2012 to go to FX.
During her tenure at FX, Clemens oversaw the development such well received original series as Atlanta, Better Things, You’re the Worst, Baskets, Man Seeking Woman, The Strain and the upcoming drama Snowfall and Mayans. Word is that Clemens, who was promoted to EVP a little over a year ago, wanted to return to representing talent as well as produce.
“As a partner at ICM, Nicole was an extraordinary representative, and she followed that career to become a highly regarded production executive at one of the most dynamic and innovative networks on TV,” the partners at Anonymous Content said in a joint statement. “The breadth and depth of Nicole’s career make her uniquely suited to thrive at Anonymous Content, and we’re thrilled to welcome such tremendous talent to our team.”
A long-time management staple, Anonymous Content has seen its production business explode in the past few years with a slew of TV series, including True Detective, Mr. Robot, The Knick, Quarry, Berlin Station and the upcoming Thirteen Reasons Why, The Alienist and Counterpart. On the feature side, the company recently produced Oscar winner Spotlight.
“Working with John Landgraf and the FX team has been an incredible professional experience, and I am proud to have been a part of such groundbreaking programming,” said Clemens. “By combining representation with hands-on producing, I’m excited to work with the team at Anonymous Content to continue to push boundaries in film and TV.”
