Ex-Siegel employee moves to Baumgarten/Prophet
Jessica Berlinski has joined management/production outfit Baumgarten/Prophet.
Berlinski brings to her new home a client roster that includes director Dean Paras (“Hairshirt”) as well as thesps Maurice Compte (“The Dream Catcher”) and Suzanne Krull (Imagine/U’s “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”). Berlinsky will also handle new client Sue Costello (TV’s “Costello”) with partner Craig Baumgarten.
Compte has just completed lensing Julian Schnabel’s “Before Night Falls.” Krull will next be onscreen playing Madonna’s best friend in “The Next Best Thing,” and Costello will next appear in Shooting Gallery’s “Once in a Life,” which marks Laurence Fishburne’s directorial debut.
Berlinski comes to Baumgarten/Prophet from Rick Siegel Management. Prior to that, she was at InHouse Entertainment, the outfit founded by Marc Epstein and Brian Swardstrom. Baumgarten/Prophet Entertainment has produced this year’s “Love Stinks” and “Universal Soldier: The Return.”
