Andrew Kersey is a literary manager with a focus on nurturing unique storytelling voices in film and tv.
Most recently, in the fall of 2021, his client's comedy VACATION FRIENDS starring John Cena and Lil Rel was Hulu's biggest 3-day weekend opener for an original in the streamer's history. A sequel is being fast-tracked.
In 2020, Andrew sold his client's sci-fi spec script, VARIETAL, to Universal with Mike De Luca, the Oscar-nominated producer behind THE SOCIAL NETWORK and the FIFTY SHADES OF GREY movies.
His incredibly talented clients are working on projects at all the major studios and streamers including Netflix and Amazon, and such networks and cable channels as ABC, Fox, NBC, CW, Disney Channel, and
Andrew worked his way up through the industry, starting as a production company intern before working for the management and production powerhouse 3Arts Entertainment. He left 3Arts to get experience in development at a Universal-based production company, before starting his own management company, Kersey Management, in 2004.
In such a short time, Andrew provided incredibly important and insightful feedback and was at the same time generous, funny, and grounded. Thank you so much to him!

Andrew was very good at emphasizing the positive aspects of every script, whether or not he came down positively or negatively overall. He was very considerate and well spoken on how he conveyed criticism but it was always clear he was familiar with the material and was speaking from a wealth of knowledge in the industry.

After only a short "first 15 consultation" with Andrew, I knew I wanted to work with him even more, so I booked a full hour consultation with him. I submitted a pilot script that I had completed several months ago, and was proud of getting to the end of it. But the more I sat with it, the more I felt like it needed something more, but I was just stuck on how to make it better and ultimately more marketable. Andrew's feedback was so incredibly useful, and helped me unlock parts of the story and characters that I had been trying to tell for a while, but didn't quite know how to get there. Even more specifically, Andrew helped me with fleshing out and making primary and secondary characters more three dimensional and true. I really appreciated our conversations and his approach of guiding me towards answers to questions vs. telling me answers right away. He is someone who I would 100% recommend working with, and someone that I hope to continue working with.
