D.
King

Founder / CEO

Five years after departing WME, where he was the first African-American partner in the agency’s 100-plus-year history, King got back in the talent-rep game in January 2020, launching Macro Management, a division of his multi-platform media company Macro, dedicated to projects driven by people of color. Six months later, he folded it into M88, a new firm launched with fellow WME alum Phillip Sun. King, who inked a first-look deal with Warner Bros. in 2019, has earned his mark well as a producer with features such as “Mudbound,” “Fences,” “Sorry to Bother You,” “Just Mercy,” and “Harriet” along with 2020’s “Tigertail” and “Farewell Amor,” plus “Nine Days” and “Judas and the Black Messiah” for 2021. He is also behind HBO doc “The Apollo” and is readying season 2 of Netflix series “Raising Dion.”
