United Talent Agency (UTA) has hired media rights agent Sarah Luciano to join the company out of its New York offices, the company announced on Tuesday.
Luciano began her career at CAA in 2012 and was most recently a manager in Anonymous Content’s newly-formed media rights department. She has worked with authors, journalists, talent and publications across multiple platforms to usher IP onto the screen.
“Sarah’s background in transforming IP into successful on-screen projects will be a tremendous asset not only to our clients but the agency at large,” said Julien Thuan, co-head of UTA’s motion picture literary department in a statement. “She will be a great addition to our team.”
Luciano is a graduate of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts.
UTA recently promoted nine coordinates to agents and one to executive. Luciano adds to a tally of previously 17 agents who have been promoted within the last year, which UTA says more than half of the agents identify as women and a third as people of color. The agency says it has made a continued effort to develop and diversify its ranks.
Last week, UTA also promoted 21 assistants across five offices in music, motion picture literary, TV talent, TV literary, talent, podcasting, digital talent, marketing, alternative, theatre, speakers, UTA IQ and human resources to coordinators.
