WME has signed writer-producer Prentice Penny.

Penny’s past TV writing-producing credits include Fox’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine, ABC’s Happy Endings, and UPN’s Girlfriends. He also created and executive produced the NAACP Award-winning Fuse network series, The Hustle.

Penny, who directed an episode of Insecure this past season, produces via his A Penny for Your Thoughts Entertainment banner. He is currently under an overall deal with HBO.

Additionally, Penny, who was previously at CAA, hosts and executive produces TruTV’s lifestyle series Upscale With Prentice Penny. He is also repped by Chris Pollack at Forge Media and John Meigs and Adam Kaller at Hansen Jacobsen.
