'Dexter' mastermind joins CAA

Clyde Phillips was at WMA before Endeavor merger

Clyde Phillips, executive producer and showrunner of Showtime's "Dexter," has signed with CAA.

He was at WMA, which recently merged with Endeavor to form WME.

Phillips has been an executive producer on "Dexter" for four seasons, since the drama's launch in 2006. "Dexter," which stars Michael C. Hall as a forensic expert moonlighting as a serial killer, recently landed its second consecutive Emmy nomination for best drama series. The show also won a Peabody Award in 2007, and Phillips received two WGA nominations along with the series' writing staff and two PGA Awards, shared with the rest of "Dexter's" producing team.

Before "Dexter," Phillips created and executive produced Fox's dramedy "Get Real" and also created the NBC comedy "Suddenly Susan" and Fox's "Parker Lewis Can't Lose."

Aside from TV, Phillips is a novelist; his newest book, "Unthinkable," will be published this year.
