EXCLUSIVE: Two years after joining Circle of Confusion, Leslie Maskin has been named partner at the management and production company. Two of Maskin’s established director clients recently landed high-profile series gigs — Charlotte Brandstrom was named executive producer for Season 2 of Amazon’s Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, while Alan Taylor joined Season 2 of HBO’s House of Dragon in the same capacity.
“Leslie has always played an impactful role in the Entertainment business, specifically helping to build and grow careers for writers and directors, and has continued to do that and more since she joined the company just over two years ago”, the Circle partners said in a joint statement. “We are thrilled to have her join as a partner and know her passion, commitment, advocacy and leadership will only continue to enrich Circle, her clients and the industry in a positive way.”
