New Wave Entertainment has tapped Maureen Taran as VP of management and production for the company’s New York office, which will open soon. She joins New Wave with over 15 years of talent, production and management experience.

Taran, who previously served as VP of programming at the Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival, helped launch the careers of comedians Dave Chappelle, Wanda Sykes and Tracy Morgan. She also served as supervising producer of Showtime’s “The Green Room With Paul Provenza,” as well as VP of original programming, events and specials at EPIX, where she worked on comedy specials with Kevin Smith, Eddie Izzard and Craig Ferguson.

Taran will play a major role in launching the Gotham expansion of New Wave, where she plans to cultivate a fresh roster of clients and acquisitions from the East Coast.

“I am thrilled to be spearheading New Wave’s management and production in New York,” said Taran. “I’ve known and respected their team for years and relish the opportunity to work with them as peers. I look forward to discovering and developing new talent and production, and expanding our presence on the East Coast.”

“Maureen Taran brings to New Wave a tremendous wealth of management and production experience. A hire of this caliber clearly represents our commitment to servicing the east coast talent and buyers that we do so much business with,” said Brian Volk-Weiss, the head of production and senior VP of talent management and dynamics at New Wave Entertainment.
