Forthcoming announcement to confirm specifics
Carrie Stein, head of ICM’s TV longform department, is ankling the agency after an 11-year tenure.
Stein will be segueing into a related venture in the TV biz but declined to give specifics. She told Daily Variety her work will continue to focus on movies and minis, but with an emphasis on marrying international producers with the right Stateside projects and vice versa.
“The new opportunity is complementary to what I’ve been doing,” said Stein, who added that an announcement will be forthcoming. “The longform business is alive and well, despite what people think. And ICM is thrilled for me because I’ll continue to work with all of our clients.”
Tenpercenter most recently packaged ABC’s “Have No Fear: The Life of Pope John Paul II” and upcoming 9/11 miniseries; the CBS/Robert Ludlum four-hour “Covert One: The Hades Factor”; and AMC’s summer oater “Broken Trail,” starring and exec produced by Robert Duvall.
Her client roster includes longform heavyweights Stanley M. Brooks, Moctezuma Esparza, Granada and Alliance Atlantis.
A replacement for Stein has not yet been named; her functions will be absorbed by other agents in the worldwide TV department.
“TV longform remains a priority for ICM,” said Bob Levinson, ICM’s worldwide head of television. “The agency has a proven track record in this genre, with very strong development lists at all networks, and we look forward to working with Carrie in her new role.”
Before ICM, Stein spent seven years as a development exec for Cosgrove-Meurer Prods., and before that, Disney’s “Sunday Night Movie” franchise. She began her career as a production exec for helmer Taylor Hackford, working on such films as “Against All Odds,” “White Knights” and “La Bamba.”
