Steve Small joins Jamie Kennedy’s JKE

Former Paradigm talent department head named partner

Former Paradigm talent department head Steve Small has joined TV and film production company Jamie Kennedy Entertainment as a partner, a combination that will also spawn a separate, full-service management agency.

Called Artist to Artist, the new tenpercentary arm will rep talent and lit clients across showbiz disciplines.

JKE’s TV side will focus on scripted and unscripted television, while the film side will focus on comedies. Writer/producer Dave Sheridan (“Horrible Bosses”) remains president of JKE, working with Small and Kennedy on the group’s creative efforts, with Small running day-to-day.

“Steve is the best ten-percenter I have ever had, and Sheridan is the most creative guy I’ve ever collaborated with,” said Kennedy (“Good Deeds,” “Ghost Whisperer”). “When the opportunity came along to get us all under the same roof, it was a no-brainer.”

JKE recently wrapped hidden-camera pilot “Parental Payback” for TBS. It’s also in talks with production companies for a new game show; and is closing deals for Comedy Central pilot script “Schlub Life.” On the film side, company is in pre-production on throwback slasher-horror pic “Granny” with Riveting Entertainment, as well as a timely documentary of Pakistan’s Sachal Studio Orchestra with Academy Award winner Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy. Also in the pipeline is an adaptation of E. Van Lowe’s best-selling book series, “Boyfriend From Hell”, and a film spoof of the Hunger Games franchise.
