Visual Arts Entertainment Takes on a New Role
Production company Visual Arts Entertainment, best known for the number one box office hit, "Gridiron Gang" starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson launches management arm to the Los Angeles based shingle adding Christos Vasilopoulos, costar of Cinemax’s new Alan Ball series, “Banshee” to their roster.
Actress Jamie Janek, co-star of “My Trip Back to the Dark Side” with Sean Young and Betsy Russell, and fresh from her well-reviewed one-woman show has also joined VAE's stable of talent.
Stanley and Johnson produced both “Pleasure and Pain” for King, and “My Trip Back to the Dark Side” for their production shingle. “We’ve had the privilege of working with a lot of great talent over the years and have developed some wonderful relationships, pairing several actors and musicians with powerful agents, lawyers, and exciting projects. We felt it was time to take it to the next level, assist in developing those careers hands on, and help to see their dreams come to fruition,” says Stanley.
Visual Arts Entertainment Partner Tiffany Johnson agrees. “We’re excited about formalizing what we’ve been doing all along, nurturing people and relationships, bringing quality talent together to create something amazing.”
Both “Pleasure or Pain” and “My Trip Back to the Dark Side” will release late in 2013; “Banshee,” created by Jonathan Trooper and David Schickler with Greg Yaitanes as the show runner, airs weekly on Cinemax and just got the order for a second season. Vasilopoulos is repped legally by Michael Golland of Abrams, Garfinkel, Margolis, Bergson, LLP.
