Partner

One of the benefits of having big-name clients such as Matt Damon, Ben Affleck writer-director-producers Joss Whedon and James L. Brooks and former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama’s prodco Higher Ground is it gives Fischer the juice to do good deeds in troubled times, like co-chairing the Saban Community Clinic virtual gala that raised over $1.6 million to keep it operating during the pandemic. He also found time to cut big deals for Chernin Entertainment (multi-picture first-look arrangement with Netflix), TV writer-producers Steven Levi­tan (overall deal with Twentieth Century Fox Television), Darren Star (overall agreement with Viacom) and Greg Daniels (Netflix’s “Space Force” and Amazon’s “Upload”) and exec Lloyd Braun (agreement to run Endeavor Client Services, including WME).
