Kelly Miller has joined Literate, A.B. Fischer and Dennis Kim’ television-focused boutique management and production company, as a manager. Miller moves to Literate from Paradigm, where she served as a theater-to-TV crossover agent.
The move to Literate is a return to management for Miller, who before her stint at Paradigm was a manager at The Shuman Company. It also reunites her with Fischer, with whom she worked at The Shuman Co., where Fischer was a Partner before leaving to form Literate in a year ago.
Miller will continue to focus on representing female, trans and diverse writers, as well as expanding Literate’s list of playwright clients who have crossed over into film and television including: Jihan Crowther (Man In the High Castle), Etan Frankel (Shameless), Andrew Hinderaker (Away), Robert Horn (Partners), Geraldine Inoa (The Walking Dead), Laura Jacqmin (Get Shorty), Kyle Jarrow (Valor), Mona Mansour, Daria Miyeko Marinelli, Laura Marks (The Good Fight), Jami O’Brien (NOS4A2), Anthony Sparks (Queen Sugar), and Loy Webb.
“We are thrilled to have Kelly join us here at Literate. Her experience, impeccable taste, and fierce advocacy on behalf of her clients make her the perfect addition to our team,” added Fischer and Kim. “That said, we’re mostly excited to have a ringer this year for the annual Agents and Managers World Series of Poker Tournament at the Morongo Casino, Resort & Spa.”
Miller has an extensive theater background, having previously served as the Director of Development for Rolin Jones’ TV/theater company New Neighborhood, as well as South Coast Repertory’s Literary Director and the Co-Director of the Pacific Playwrights Festival, where she dramaturged over 40 world premiere productions and readings. Her other theater stints include Actors Theatre of Louisville, Williamstown and Long Wharf Theatre. She also consulted for the O’Neill, Berkeley Rep, the Kennedy Center, Public Theater, among others, and is a founding member of The Kilroys, an LA-based group of artists advocating for gender parity in the American theater.
“I’m incredibly grateful to Paradigm for the opportunity they gave me and for their continued support in my transition back to management,” said Miller. “I’m psyched to build on that momentum as I embark on this exciting new journey with A.B. and Dennis at Literate.”
