Marjorie Skouras has joined Writers & Artists Agency, heading up a new division specializing in the representation of directors.
Skouras comes from Skouras Pictures, where she was senior VP of acquisitions.
“I am thrilled to be part of the wonderful literary team at Writers & Artists, and I look forward to working with both new directors and renewing my existing ties with the creative community,” Skouras said in a statement.
Skouras will focus her efforts on attracting new talent, as well as helping to guide the careers of more established helmers.
“We are delighted to have her here,” said Writers & Artists president and founder Joan Scott. “We see an opportunity to fill a void that there has been in the marketplace.”
