Partner / Chair, Global Entertainment & Media

Back in 2018, Emanuel helped secure one of the biggest TV deals ever for Ryan Murphy at Netflix (worth some $300 million), and he’s been handling ongoing negotiations between the writer-producer and the streamer for projects including the series “Hollywood” and a new adaptation of the play “The Boys in the Band.” He inked the deal for Tony Gilroy to write and exec produce a “Rogue One” series for Disney Plus and repped the Lumistella Company in auctioning the rights for children’s book “The Elf on the Shelf” to Netflix. Emanuel also repped Plan B president Dede Gardner in the prodco’s Amazon TV pact and Sight Unseen in its Hulu deal for the film “Bad Hair.” Other clients include Robert Rodriguez and Cirque du Soleil.
