We announced our semifinalists to the 2014 Launch Pad Features Competition only 15 days ago, and we are very happy to announce that another of our Top 25 writers has been signed! Congratulations to Jacob Isser, the scribe behind the comedy H.O.V. (HIGH OCCUPANCY VEHICLE), on signing with his new manager, Tom Carter of RSG!
Isser was born in Berkeley, California and raised in Ashland, Oregon. He graduated Yale University with a B.A. in Cognitive Psychology and then turned his talents to writing music video treatments for artists such as Sheryl Crow, Shakira and Remy Zero. After doing that for a short time, he became a story analyst for Scott Free, Participant, and Oxygen, and eventually became the least qualified I.T. technician in history.
Carter is a literary manager and film/TV producer known for guiding the work of talented new writers and filmmakers into commercially viable properties. His clients currently have projects in development with talent such as David Goyer, Jeremy Renner, John Legend, and The Russo Brothers; producers such as Ridley Scott, Matt Tolmach, Timberman/Beverly, Dan Harmon; and studios such as CBS, UCP, FTVS, Sony, Legendary, and The Weinstein Co.
Congratulations again to Isser!
