US Media Agencies

This initial list of US based media agencies, predominately representing screenwriters, directors, and actors, was compiled by visiting the websites of every single one of them.

Consequently, through this page, creatives now have access to the very latest details about their submission policies.

Many of these agencies do not take unsolicited approaches. This means they are never open to queries from creatives, and only take on clients based on referrals. So please refrain from contacting them unless through a recommendation from an Industry Professional.

In some cases their submission polices have been split into Above-the-Line Talent (Screenwriters, Directors, Producers, and Actors) and Below-the-Line Talent (Crew).

Where the main agency does not have a Twitter account, the individual accounts of their agents are provided instead. All of these accounts are linked directly to their Twitter page, so you can follow them with a simple click. However, do not pitch submissions via Twitter. Always stick to the individual requirements of the agency.

Clicking on the name of the agency will open their own website for further details, but the essentials are all listed here. The e-mail addresses all are linked too, so clicking on them will enable you to e-mail them instantly.

Unless otherwise indicated, the 26 US media agencies below are based in Los Angeles.
