Literary Agency Film/TV Rights Internship

We specialize in film and television, and deal mainly with writers, directors, producers, managers, and occasionally with publishers. We have sold projects produced with Brad Pitt at Warner Brothers, Ridley Scott at Universal, a #1 New York Times Bestseller at Dreamworks, an Emmy Award winning HBO movie, and a hit Netflix series.

We are a busy 2-person office, and there is lots of room to learn about the workings of a film/literary agency, ie., how books, articles, and life rights are adapted for film, the structure of an option/purchase or screenwriting deal, etc.

Lots of phone work, extensive internet research, and other office-related tasks. Reading manuscripts/screenplays and writing coverage. Creating submission lists with directors, actors, producers.

Frequent moviegoing is a plus.

Experience with Microsoft Outlook is a plus, but strong phone skills are a must.

We are looking for a commitment of a minimum of 3 months, 11am-7pm, 2 days a week, Thursdays and Fridays.

There is a stipend of $20 a day. Please send cover letter and resume. Thank You.
