ICM U.K. TV Head Pippa Lambert Moves to WME
The London-based television agent also will relocate to Los Angeles early next year.
Longtime U.K.-based ICM agent Pippa Lambert is now at WME, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Before leaving ICM Partners a few months ago, Lambert spent nearly a decade running the television department at the agency's London office, where she helped bring several adaptations of popular overseas scripted programs stateside, including FX's Wilfred and ABC's Secrets and Lies, which were both based on Australian series. In November, ICM promoted agent Mark Gordon to head of international scripted television, and he moved to London to work in the newly created role.
Lambert, who will relocate to Los Angeles early next year, will now report to WME-IMG partner Chris Rice as a senior television agent focused on global sales and packaging. She previously served stints at All3Media International, Revolver Entertainment and TV International, working in international distribution across sales, marketing and acquisitions of TV and film properties.
