Raffaella de Angelis, international literary agent and partner at WME, is joining Fremantle to head up literary acquisitions for its global drama division.
Her remit will extend across Lorenzo Mieli’s The Apartment, part of Fremantle, and Richard Brown’s Passenger, with whom Fremantle has an exclusive multiyear deal. She is based in London and will report to Christian Vesper, Fremantle’s executive VP, creative director for global drama.
De Angelis said: “I’m incredibly thankful to Andrea Scrosati, Christian Vesper and Fremantle for allowing me to connect my two passions; the screen and exceptional storytelling. I can’t wait to find literary material for Richard Brown at Passenger and Lorenzo Mieli at The Apartment, two of the most visionary producers in the current high-end drama space, as well as for Fremantle global drama’s group of dynamic and multilingual producers.”
Vesper said: “Raffaella’s literary experience and eye for a fantastic story is unrivaled. She will be an incredible addition to Fremantle’s global drama family, working closely with our incredible partners Passenger and The Apartment, to find literary gems that will eventually become outstanding drama series. We look forward to welcoming Raffaella on board.”
