Any known screenwriters or directors repped by Magnet? They just requested my script. So far what I've read about them I really like. Their website is a bit rookie though.

I've talked to them and heard good things, but I feel like I never see their names in the trades, etc. I don't know if that means anything as I'm sure tons of deal happen w/o us knowing, but just curious what this means. I could be more focused on specs of course.

Yeah, my thoughts exactly. I can't find who they rep, or any huge stories about them, but everyone loves them, and I hear they're great to have in your corner. I'm sure they do alright.

I used to be repped by them. Despite their great rep (and they are all really nice people), they weren't very active about furthering my career. I had another friend who was also repped with them, who experienced the same lethargy I did.

Really? That's surprising. This is the first bad thing I've heard about them. Thought they were all about cultivating careers with writers. Interesting. Thans for the post

I have to echo the same thoughts. They don’t seem to be in the “managing” part of mgmt. They don’t take the time to develop people as writers, just to broker screenplays. If you are going to hire a manager, you want someone who can help you grow and develop your craft.

I'm repped by Magnet and Gersh. Both sent me out on decent mtgs and helped setup a project with Mark Gordon. If I give them good material, they do a good job. But in recent years I've been more focused on producing than writing.
