BWCS ups Gladstone, Smith

Exex promoted to feature co-heads

Emile Gladstone and Paul Alan Smith have been promoted to co-heads of the feature department at the Broder-Webb-Chervin-Silbermann Agency.

Gladstone will focus on writers, Smith on directors, and both will oversee all aspects of the 12-agent department. The BWCS feature department currently includes more than 100 writers, producers and directors.

Gladstone joined BWCS in 1995. He began his agency career as a lit agent with the Agency. He also served as a supervising production coordinator at ITC Entertainment. After receiving his B.A. from Emerson College in 1990, he was represented by the William Morris Agency as a feature and television writer.

Smith was hired by BWCS as a senior agent in 1994 to build a directors’ program for the agency’s TV division. Before that, he was VP current programming at Warner Bros. Television and was an agent at Triad Artists. He studied theater at UCLA and NYU.

The department was previously run for 10 years by Bruce Kaufman, who remains an agent with BWCS and reps clients such as helmer Billy Ray (“Shattered Glass”).

Other BWCS filmmaker clients include Charles Herman-Wurmfeld (“Legally Blonde II”) and Niki Caro (“Whale Rider”).

The client list also includes screenwriters such as Mike Ferris and John Brancato (“Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines,” “Catwoman”), Ed Decter and John Strauss (“There’s Something About Mary,” “The Lizzie McGuire Movie”), Alex Kurtzman-Counter and Roberto Orci (“Zorro Returns”), Victor Levin (“Win a Date With Tad Hamilton!!!”), Josh Goldsmith and Cathy Yuspa (“What Women Want,” “13 Going on 30”) and David Wagner and Brent Goldberg (“The Girl Next Door”).
