Launch Pad alum Sarah Lampert has signed with UTA and Energy Entertainment, the Tracking Board has learned. She’ll be represented by agents Charles Ferraro and Lily Safran, and literary manager/producer Brooklyn Weaver.
Lampert’s script I Love College generated considerable buzz from the 2017 Launch Pad Pilots Competition, where it placed in the Top 25. Described as Greek meets Mean Girls, the story follow four freshman girls as they attempt to reconcile being modern, independent women with rushing a sorority and the sexism, peer pressure, cattiness, drugs, hierarchy, and, above all, sisterhood that comes with it.
The script received high marks for its strong sense of humor, clear voice, impeccable plotting, and hilarious over-the-top characters that form a well-balanced sitcom ensemble. The story delivers plenty of satire, a raunchy and unabashedly feminine voice, and plenty of nasty sorority girls you love to hate.
Lampert is currently housed at Madica Productions where she works as Manager of Development and has several of her projects set up. Madica is the sister production company to PR behemoth Sunshine Sachs. Prior to that, she spent most of her time working in unscripted television for companies including Fremantle Media, Untitled Entertainment and Ellen Rakieten Entertainment.
Lampert is certainly in good hands, as Ferraro is a partner at UTA with a client list that includes Captain America: Civil War writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, Oscar winners Diana Ossana and Larry McMurtry (Brokeback Mountain), and Dr. Who show-runner Steven Moffat.
Meanwhile, Safran’s clients include director Antonio Campos (USA’s The Sinner) and numerous staff writers working for networks such as FX, Netflix, NBC, FreeForm and more. Both Ferraro and Safran have served as previous Launch Pad judges, with a number of clients landing spots on both the Hit List and the Young & Hungry List.
Weaver is a longtime Launch Pad advocate who has served as a judge for every single competition, signing nearly a dozen writers from them. Weaver’s clients include Deadpool creator Rob Liefield, Brad Inglesby (Out of the Furnace), Mickey Fisher (Extant) and Mark Mallouk (Black Mass). Weaver’s producing credits include Out of the Furnace, Run All Night and Extant, as well as the upcoming pilots A God in the Shed for Skydance Productions and Akiva Goldsman’s Weed Road Pictures, and the Amblin TV pilot Reverie for NBC.
