‘Pretty Little Liars’ Alum Shay Mitchell Drops APA for UTA (Exclusive)

Actress has overall deal at Warner Bros.TV, will star in Lifetime’s upcoming thriller “You”

“Pretty Little Liars” alumni Shay Mitchell has departed Agency for the Performing Arts and signed with United Talent Agency in all areas.

Mitchell was with APA for five years and exited at the top of 2018, multiple individuals familiar with the matter told TheWrap.

Neither agency responded to immediate requests for comment.

Mitchell was one of the leads on the long-running Freeform soap “Liars.” This year, she’ll topline the Sony Pictures horror film “Cadaver,” and has a plum role in the Lifetime’s upcoming episodic thriller “You.”

Adapted from the bestseller by Caroline Kepnes, Mitchell will portray New England elitist Peach Salinger, a protective best friend of actress Elizabeth Lail and adversary to her obsessive love interest and show lead Penn Badgley. Berlanti Productions and Alloy Entertainment are producers with Warner Horizon Scripted Television and A&E Studios.

Mitchell also has an overall production and talent deal with Warner Bros. TV.

APA recently reorganized its entire comedy department, after losing board member and department head Mike Berkowitz — a heavyweight and singular force in the comedy touring space — to William Morris Endeavor.
