Lit management company Writ Large is looking to make expansions in the company by hiring Courtney Conwell as a new manager and promoting Lea Dizon to manager.
Conwell comes to Writ Large from John Hamburg’s production company where she served as a development executive most recently working on the Fox comedy “Why Him?” At Writ Large she will be fully focused on representing writers and directors.
She had also previously worked with such writers and directors such as Stephanie Savage, Phil Hay, Matt Manfredi and Karyn Kusama.
Dizon began working at Circle of Confusion as an assistant before leaving the company to help start Writ Large with the co-founding partners serving as the as the film and TV coordinator. Her clients include Rick Spears, whose script “Black Bats” went through the Sundance Producer Lab; Sudhanshu Saria, who wrote and directed the movie “Loev”, which premiered at SXSW this year and Yaelle Kayam, whose movie “The Mountain” was at AFI and New Directors/New Films.
Writ Large was formed in 2015 after Britton Rizzio, Greg Shephard and Noah Rosen left Circle of Confusion. On the film side, the company represents a number of clients whose films are in various states of production – Max Landis, Oren Uziel, Dan Casey and Dave Coggeshall. Two of these client films – “Shimmer Lake” and “Godforsaken” – are being produced by Writ Large. On the TV side, the company represents a number of clients whose TV shows are currently airing or are in production – Seith Mann, Ben Ketai, Nick Antosca, Max Landis, Soo Hugh, Larysa Kondracki and Michael Offer.
Conwell represents Bert Royal (“Easy A”) and Emma Fletcher (“Parks and Rec”).
