Gotham Group, Principal Entertainment form joint venture

Each company will retain its own name for now

Management-production company the Gotham Group and talent management banner Principal Entertainment Los Angeles are forming a joint venture.

The companies will be housed in Gotham’s offices on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles. Wednesday’s announcement contained no mention of what the new joint venture will be called so each company will retain its own identity for the immediate future.

The announcement was made by Gotham CEO Ellen Goldsmith-Vein and PELA partners Marsha McManus, Larry Taube and Liz Robinson. Gotham’s Lindsay Williams and Lee Stollman have been tapped to “manage” the relationship.

“The intersection between PELA’s impressive talent representation capabilities and Gotham’s broad expertise across the animation, film and television worlds will expand opportunities for all our clients,” said Goldsmith-Vein.

Principal’s roster includes Seth Rogen, Jim Parsons, Sandra Oh, Cheryl Hines, Alexander Skarsgard, Tom Wilkinson, Andy Serkis, Brendan Gleeson, Steve Zahn, Christopher Eccleston, Sally Hawkins, Joanne Frogatt, Taylor Kinney, Katy Mixon and Kate Burton.

Gotham clients include publishers Scholastic, Simon & Schuster, HarperCollins, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Bloomsbury Walker US, Soho, Dark Horse Comics, and Arcana. Other clients include Henry Selick, Danny Strong, Dave Eggers, Steve Buscemi, David Gordon Green, Zach Helm, Thor Freudenthal, Wentworth Miller and Emily Kapnek.

Gotham is in production on an untitled Elmore Leonard project based on his novel “The Switch” and plans a May start for “The Maze Runner.” It has a first-look at Sony Animation.
