HOLLYWOOD — Principato-Young Management has acquired lit firm Fischer Management and opened a satellite office in New York.
Just-hired comedy manager Brian Steinberg will head the Gotham office, while PYM plans to move into the Marciano Building in Beverly Hills to accommodate its growth.
Allen Fischer’s clients include Jay Lavendar & Jeremy Garelick, who wrote “The Golden Tux” for Dimension Films, and TV helmer Lev Spiro. Fischer began his career in the CAA lit department and left to start his shingle in 2000.
PYM’s New York-based clients include Eric Slovin & Leo Allen (“Saturday Night Live”), Artie Lange (“The Howard Stern Show”), Geoff Rodkey (“Daddy Day Care”) and Michael Colton & John Aboud, founders of the satirical daily Modern Humorist.
Steinberg began his career producing live comedy shows at colleges for Lorne Michaels’ Burly Bear network before moving into management.
Principato and Young are exec producing “Reno 911,” a half-hour comedy series for Comedy Central created by and starring Thomas Lennon and Ben Garant. They also are producing Lennon and Garant’s first screenplay, “You Are Going to Prison,” in association with Marc Abraham’s Strike Entertainment.
PYM made a first-look deal at Dimension last month. Their first project will be a comedy written by Adam Glass and Anthony Anderson (“Scary Movie 3”), which will go before cameras in 2004.
