About Your Host

After graduating from USC's School of Cinematic Arts, Jon Hersh went on to become a full-time story analyst at Creative Artists Agency. During his tenure there, he evaluated thousands of screenplays, pilots, and books, and gave detailed story notes to high-level clients of the agency. After four years at CAA, Jon moved on to the fledgling mini-studio Broad Green Pictures where he helped found a new and innovative Story Department for the 100-employee company. Besides running a busy department that evaluated 50+ scripts per week, Jon had a hand in developing a slate of quality projects for the company and delivering detailed notes to writers and executives. He currently works as a literary manager at Housefire Management in Hollywood. Currently, he has a client adapting a book for Paramount Players, a client staffed on The CW's LEGACIES, and two clients who recently sold spec scripts to Straight Up Films and Pioneer Pictures & Lost City. Jon recently also helped set up one of our writer's scripts at Lionsgate.
