Jason Mann - H 2015

The agency already reps the HBO docuseries’ executive producers Ben Affleck and Matt Damon.

Project Greenlight winning director Jason Mann has signed with WME, home of the show’s executive producers Ben Affleck and Matt Damon.

The filmmaker was picked in the HBO docuseries’ Sept. 13 premiere to helm his first feature, and that journey is the focus of the show’s fourth season. Through the first two episodes, he already has proven to be a compelling protagonist, unafraid to confront the producers with script changes and a request to shoot on film rather than digitally. (And that hasn’t been the only drama generated by the series, back after a decade-long hiatus.)

Mann continues to be repped by George Heller of Apostle Management and by Bloom Hergott.
