WME Agent Kevin Hill Joins Dwayne Johnson and Dany Garcia's Seven Bucks Productions
He worked closely with the pair as an agent in the non-scripted television department.
WME agent Kevin Hill is departing to serve as head of television and digital development at Dwayne Johnson and Dany Garcia's Seven Bucks Productions, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
During his six-and-a-half years in the agency's non-scripted TV department, Hill worked frequently with the duo, packaging their upcoming NBC series The Titan Games and BET series Finding Justice, as well as HBO's Rock and a Hard Place, Spike's Rock the Troops, CNN's Soundtracks: Songs that Defined History and the podcast What Really Happened? with documentarian Andrew Jenks.
"We couldn't be more thrilled to officially welcome Kevin into the family," Garcia and Johnson said Friday in a joint statement. "Throughout his hard work with us at WME, Kevin has proven a deep understanding of the Seven Bucks ethos and ability to make groundbreaking and ambitious projects happen. He's been a key driver of our growth, and we've been huge fans of his talents from the moment we first met."
At WME, Hill also worked with WWE, Reddit, Daveed Diggs, Andrew Jenks, Film 45 and Eli Roth. He negotiated Les Twins' deal to appear in Sony's upcoming Men in Black spinoff, and helped sell the documentaries Ghostheads (to Netflix) and The Bill Murray Stories: Life Lessons Learned From a Mythical Man (to Gravitas Ventures). Prior to joining the agency, Hill worked with producers Stephanie Allain and Paul Hall on films including Peeples and Good Deeds.
"I was fortunate to watch Dwayne and Dany build an amazing foundation and culture at Seven Bucks, and I'm honored to have the opportunity to work with them, the entire Seven Bucks team and WME in my new role," Hill said in a statement. "I look forward to finding new ways to deliver premium content to their diverse and global audience."
