SPECIAL GUESTS

Brian Medavoy

Brian Medavoy is a Co-Founding Partner for More/Medavoy. He is an award-winning producer and manager who has emerged as one of Hollywood’s top talent representatives, helping to craft the early careers of actors such as Ryan Reynolds, Tobey Maguire, Josh Brolin, David Schwimmer, Jason Bateman and Maria Bello, among others.

More/Medavoy made the move to producing projects for their clients, beginning with the television series “Sweet Justice” starring Cicely Tyson and Melissa Gilbert. Medavoy produced nine pilots including “The Single Guy,” starring Jonathan Silverman for NBC, and “Getting Personal” with Duane Martin for Fox. They also developed the hit ABC comedy “Dharma and Greg” starring Jenna Elfman. This led to the pair signing an exclusive producing deal with 20th Century Television where they later produced “Just Shoot Me,” which aired for seven seasons on NBC.

More-Medavoy later merged with powerhouse managers Susan Bymel and Evelyn O’Neill to form Talent Entertainment Group, representing A-list talent while developing film and television projects for their clients. One of those projects, the highly-acclaimed PBS series “American High,” garnered Medavoy an Emmy award for Outstanding Non-Fiction Program (Reality). 

Brian has deep roots in the entertainment industry. His father, prolific film producer Mike Medavoy, is the co-founder of Orion Pictures, former chairman of TriStar Pictures and current chairman and CEO of Phoenix Pictures.

He got his start working for Norman Lear and Bud Yorkin’s legendary television companies T.A.T and Tandem Productions where he watched television history being made in the company that produced iconic programs such as “All In The Family”, “One Day At A Time”, “Maude”, and “The Jeffersons” to name a few.
