Variety’s Dealmakers Impact Report 2022: Tough Times Take Tough Negotiators
Entertainment Partners Marcie Cleary and Andrew Hurwitz are included in Variety’s Dealmakers Impact Report 2022. Andrew repped Rob Siegel as creator-showrunner for Hulu’s “Pam & Tommy” and “Welcome to Chippendales,” and his 20th Tele-vision overall deal at midyear. His other active this year include James Gunn writing-directing HBO Max’s “Peacemaker,” WEP auctioning Voltron toy property rights to Amazon for features and Dan Futterman scripting “The Bruce Lee Story,” directed by Ang Lee. Marcie negotiated a seven-figure deal in February for Mandii B and Bridget Kelly’s podcast “See, the Thing Is” with Gumball. She advised ThreeFourTwo Prods. for basketballers J.J.
