Ace Spec Script Agent David Boxerbaum Joins Verve As Partner


David Boxerbaum, who at Paradigm established himself as the most prolific seller of spec scripts around, has left that agency and joined Verve as a partner and lit agent. Boxerbaum brings with him a roster of directors, writers and producers and the move is immediate after being rumored for the past few days.

In a joint statement, the partnership said, “We are thrilled to be working with David and for the founders that means a reunion. David embodies the principles that this company was founded upon, hard work, passion for the business, strategic thinking and a willingness to go through hell and back on behalf of the clients. We think he’s cool.”

Said Boxerbaum: “Verve has a tremendous reputation for its quality and first-class representation. I am thrilled to be joining such a disruptive and forward-thinking agency.”

Boxerbaum becomes the agency’s sixth partner alongside Bryan Besser, Adam Levine, Amy Retzinger, Adam Weinstein and Bill Weinstein. He was not a partner at Paradigm.

Boxerbaum began his career working for producer Jerry Bruckheimer before moving to the William Morris Agency, and then Endeavor. He spent the last six years as a leader in the literary group at Paradigm. He has been on a tear this year, selling around 16 spec scripts.
