Gottlieb rejoins film division at ICM


Hildy Gottlieb is returning to ICM as a motion picture talent agent, the agency said Wednesday.

Gottlieb rejoins the agency after first starting at ICM in 1980. She worked there until 1990, representing various A-list clients, and left the agency to run Alec Baldwin's production company El Dorado Pictures from 1990-94. From there, Gottlieb led the development efforts for Emmy-winning director-producer Walter Hill.

"Hildy is recognized throughout the industry for her exceptional ability to discover and guide talent," said Toni Howard, head of ICM's motion picture talent department.

Gottlieb said she has always had a passion for the agency side of the business and looks forward to working with the firm's roster of artists.

Gottlieb, who begins her new position Oct. 1, will be based out of Los Angeles.
