Sharon Horgan, the co-creator and star of the multi-award winning comedy series Catastrophe, has joined forces with award-winning producer/partner, Clelia Mountford, to launch Merman and create a family of award-winning writers and directors.
The new company, which opens with offices in London, LA and New York, will be led by US-based global managing partner, Kira Carstensen. The company boasts a roster of talent that includes Lucy Walker, Mariana Youssef, MJ Delaney and Peter Lydon.
In the UK, Merman is led by EP/partner Dan Dickenson, formerly of Partizan, and business development director, Siobhan Murphy, who moved over from Moxie. In addition to Merman’s roster of talent, they will exclusively represent the directors signed to Superprime in the UK.
