Leder signs up with UTA

'Impact,' 'Forward' helmer ankles CAA

Helmer Mimi Leder has signed with United Talent Agency for representation in all areas.

The helmer of such actioners as “Deep Impact” and “The Peacemaker,” Leder most recently directed the Regency Television pilot for skein “John Doe,” of which Fox has picked up 13 episodes to air next fall.

She is exec producing the dramatic police skein with Brandon Camp and Mike Thompson, which centers on a man who awakens in Seattle with a staggering amount of knowledge about all things except his identity and what he is doing there.

While “Impact” hurtled toward more than $350,000,000 in worldwide grosses, Leder has flown through some choppy air of late: Her most recent pic, the Warner Bros. romantic drama “Pay It Forward” underperformed, and her other foray in TV, the 2001 Alphabet skein “The Beast” fizzled after just a few airings.

Through her production company, Yak Yak Pictures, headed by producing partner Margaret French Isaac, Leder has a first-look deal with John Wells Prods. at Warner Bros.

She began her directing career with hit television dramas such as “China Beach,” for which she earned four Emmy nominations, and “ER,” which earned her two Emmys.

Previously, Leder was with Creative Artists Agency.
