Allison Wallach hired as agent at UTA

Ex-BBC Worldwide exec starts in Oct. in alternative TV

NEW YORK -- United Talent Agency has hired Allison Wallach, who was most recently senior vp of programming at BBC Worldwide, as an agent in its alternative TV department.

She will be based in New York, begin Oct. 1 and report to UTA partner Michael Camacho, head of the department.

"Allison's experience as a network programmer as well as her many years working on the buyer side make her an extraordinary asset to the department," said Camacho.

"I've really enjoyed being a part of the BBC and working alongside many talented colleagues," said Wallach. "Over the years, however, I've found myself drawn increasingly towards helping to shape the careers of the creators and producers of the content we all love to watch, and the opportunity to join UTA and represent the best people working in television was one I could not pass up."
