Richman reps his share of actors, including Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons, for whom he recently negotiated a rich new three-year deal. But he is known as one of Hollywood's top lawyers for TV showrunners. This year he inked a new three-year deal with NBC Universal for The Office's Paul Lieberstein as well as new pacts for 30 Rock exec producer Robert Carlock; Emily Spivey, showrunner of Christina Applegate's new NBC series Up All Night; Jenny Bicks, exec producer of Showtime's The Big C; and Scot Armstrong of NBC's upcoming BFF.
