Agency ups Donnelly, Hodes, Wiczyk
Endeavor has minted three new partners, elevating motion picture lit agent Chris Donnelly, TV agent Greg Hodes and international finance and indie film agent Modi Wiczyk.
The three were given partnership stripes at Thursday’s staff meeting. Donnelly and Hodes made the trek after starting in the Endeavor mailroom, while Wiczyk arrived at Endeavor as an agent three years ago after leaving his post as head of production at Summit Films. The trio join 15 other agency partners, a number that lessened by one Wednesday when John Lesher ankled to become the head of Paramount Classics.
Donnelly has been an agent since 1998, after serving as assistant for founding partners David Greenblatt and Tom Strickler. His list includes directors Martin Scorsese, Michael Winterbottom, Jonathan Glazer, David Siegel and Scott McGehee, Brad Anderson, Mark Romanek and such writers as Ted Griffin, William Monahan, Matthew Carnahan, “Prison Break” exec producer Paul Scheuring and “Sex and the City” exec producer Michael Patrick King.
Hodes came to the mailroom after starting his career in Gotham as a corporate lawyer. His TV talent list includes Seth MacFarlane (“Family Guy”), Josh Schwartz (“The OC”), Glen Morgan and Jim Wong, Josh and Jay Pate, Eric Kripke (“Supernatural”), “Daily Show” correspondent Rob Corddry and “Rome” exec producer Bruno Heller.
Since joining Endeavor’s film financing unit, Wiczyk has taken part in putting together Michael Moore’s “Fahrenheit 9/11” and the director’s health care follow-up “Sicko”; and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s “21 Grams” and “Babel.” He cut his teeth in the indie game at Summit, where he was involved in such films as “Memento,” “American Pie,” “Nurse Betty” and “Requiem for a Dream.”
