Former CAA agent Andy Stabile has joined Kaplan Stahler Agency as a partner, and has been named head of the agency’s Alternative department.

Stabile previously spent 13 years in the Alternative Television department at CAA, where he focused on the representation of on-camera personalities and non-scripted producers and production companies. In his last year at CAA, Stabile brokered deals for many successful series including NBC’s “Food Fighters,” Oxygen’s “Preachers of L.A.,” Esquire’s “Knife Fight” and “Car Matchmaker.”

“Kaplan Stahler is the definitive boutique literary agency in the television business and I am honored to lead the alternative programming efforts of this storied agency,” Stabile said. “As the business opportunities continue to grow across all platforms in today’s alternative programming landscape, it’s clear that KSA, a nimble boutique agency is better positioned to service the client in maximizing those opportunities.”
