Levity Talent Hires Jennie Church-Cooper As Manager-Producer

 EXCLUSIVE: Peabody Award-winning manager and producer Jennie Church-Cooper has joined the team at Levity Talent.

Church-Cooper has spent the last 15 years working with comedic writer-performers — scouting, cultivating, and propelling them into careers as TV and feature writers, showrunners, directors, podcasters, actors and more. She joins from Haven Entertainment, where she spent the last eight years. Prior to that, she built her roster of multihyphenate talent during seven years at Principato Young Entertainment (now Artists First).

Clients Church-Cooper is bringing with her include her brother Joel Church-Cooper, a showrunner whose single-camera comedy Going Dutch is in development at Fox; Felicia Day, who recently won an Audie Award for her Audible Original podcast Third Eye; Zibby Allen, who’s currently filming Season 6 of Netflix’s Virgin River; creator Blakely Thornton; podcaster and Emmy-nominated Ted Lasso scribe Dylan Marron; showrunners Erin Gibson (Tiny Toons Looniversity) and Shauna McGarry (The Second Best Hospital in the Galaxy); Jerry Minor, currently recurring as Mr. Morton on Abbott Elementary; Bryan Safi, star of 9-1-1 and co-host with Erin Gibson of the podcast Attitudes; Alyssa Limperis, currently filming a role in the final season of What We Do in the Shadows; and comedian James Adomian, whose special Path of Most Resistance will be debuting this summer, among others.

In addition to numerous comedy specials, Church-Cooper exec produced Netflix’s talk show Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj, which ran for six seasons. Since 2019, she has also served on the Leadership Committee for the nonprofit Yes, And Laughter Lab, a competitive incubation lab, pitch program, and showcase that champions and amplifies diverse writers and performers creating new comedy about topics that matter.

“I’m thrilled to bring my roster of writers and multihyphenates over to Levity Entertainment,” the manager-producer told Deadline. “I’ve long admired Levity’s legendary list of comedians, and skill for building out huge careers. I’m so excited to join this company of like-minded, passionate managers, and hit the ground running with my phenomenal clients!”

Added Levity Founding Partner Judi Marmel,  “As Levity continues to grow our team and clients to new heights, Jennie’s passion and tireless work ethic is the perfect addition. Her taste in comedic talent is exceptional and I look forward to continuing to build the Levity team alongside of her.”

Founded in 2009, Levity’s other notable clients include Taylor Tomlinson, Bert Kreischer, Leanne Morgan, Fortune Feimster, Dusty Slay, and Rosebud Baker, to name just a few.
