As Vice President of Filmed Entertainment, Erica Silverman handles film rights for many of TMG’s agents, often working directly with producers, studios, managers, and production companies, and when appropriate in conjunction with other large talent agencies in Los Angeles. Erica has an extensive background in the film business. In her career she has represented screenwriters, producers, directors, and actors. She also ran United Artists in New York and taught film at NYU Graduate Film School. Once or twice a year, Erica and TMG’s Chairman, Robert Gottlieb, go to LA for meetings and to introduce new material to their buyers. In addition to their LA trips, Erica meets with buyers all year as they come to New York, allowing a constant flow of Trident material going to film and television companies.
