Kennar ankles Field for Swanson

H.N. Swanson Inc., the writer and director percentery, hired Larry Kennar away from the Maggie Field Agency.

Kennar, 26, will bring most of his clients with him, including Joseph Bellissimo and Jeff LoGrasso, who wrote “White House Party” for Paramount, and Linda Vorhees, who penned “Crazy From the Heart” for TNT.

Swanson prexy Thomas J. Shanks said Kennar gives the firm some strength in signing up-and-coming talent.
