WME promotes Six to Agents

Exclusive: WME on Wednesday announced the promotions of trainees Chandler Atterberry, Julia Colares, Dahbin Hahn, Zachary Jason, Alexa Sternschein and Nate Watt to agents.

Atterberry will work within the non-scripted TV division, with Callers and Hahn in talent, Jason in digital strategy, Sternschein in comedy and Watt in scripted TV. Sternschein will be based out of the agency’s NYC office, while others will work from its headquarters in Beverly Hills.

“We are incredibly proud that everyone in this group has come through WME’s Agent Trainee Program,” said WME co-chairmen Richard Weitz and Christian Muirhead. “Each of them has the curiosity, persistence and ambition that the artists we are fortunate to support represent.”

Atterberry’s work in non-scripted TV has seen him represent production companies, showrunners, documentary filmmakers, and other talent, including sports and news broadcasters. He started in WME’s mailroom shortly after graduating from the University of California, Riverside in 2019 and was promoted from intern to coordinator in 2021.

Colares began working as an assistant in WME’s talent department in 2021 and was promoted to coordinator the following year. The Ohio State University grad, originally from Brazil, previously worked at WME as a talent assistant at UTA and as a publicist at Sunshine Sachs in NYC.

Hahn joined WME as an assistant after graduating from USC in 2019, initially interning for the agency the summer before. Since then she has accumulated experience working on numerous desks within the talent division and also serves on the board of Endeavor’s employee resource group, the Asian Coalition of Endeavour.

Jason joined WME in 2018 after graduating from UCLA. He works with clients in film, TV, music, sports and fine arts and specializes in web3 technologies, developing and advising on macro, long-term IP and business development strategies across WME’s Digital Strategy Group, Client Strategy Group and Digital Department. .

Sternschein interned at WME in 2015 and joined as an assistant after graduating from Syracuse University. He previously worked as coordinator of the speaking division and enrolled in the agent trainee program before transferring to the Harry Walker Agency in 2020 when it was acquired by Endeavour. He has been part of the comedy division since 2022 and focuses on booking private, corporate and college events for clients across comedy, digital and talent.

A graduate of Yale, Wyatt is now the first openly transgender person to be promoted to agent at WME. She joined the WME mailroom in 2019 from speechwriting and communications firm West Wing Writers and now works with writers, directors and producers on scripted TV with a focus on BIPOC and/or LGBTQ+ artists.

WME announced late last month the promotion of Amanda Hacohen and Abbey Cohen Hoffing to partners in the scripted TV division. Notable recent signings at the agency include Seth MacFarlane – its Emmy-winning creator family members, Orville and more — as well as Academy Award-winning screenwriter Steven Zaillian.
