At Circle, he reps writer Brian Miller (All Our Yesterdays); photographer/filmmaker Greg Williams, who co-wrote and is attached to direct Samarkand, which has Tom Hardy attached to star; American Dad writer Jordan Blum; writer/ director Kealan O’Rourke (Emily the Strange); and Josh C. Waller, of horror label SpectreVision.

Alvarado's eye to develop high concepts and genre work is what led him to Circle, which produces The Walking Dead. The show is coming off an amazing mid-winter debut that saw the show, which drew 15.8 million viewers, outperform the Olympics in the 19-49 demo.

"Jairo is a terrific manager and fantastic person who fits in perfectly with our team here at Circle," said Circle partner Frank Frattaroli. "This is another significant step for us as we continue to ramp up our lit business on both the feature and television sides."
