Head of Talent & Vice President of Scripted & Unscripted Development
Having moved to Los Angeles straight out of college, Melissa’s first entertainment job was with Handprint Entertainment, where she learned that talent management was quite similar to a babysitting job.
Moving on to Vision Art Management, she learned the ins and outs of being a literary agent under a mentor who possessed both the good and bad attributes of the fictional Ari Gold (love that man).
Back on the East Coast from where she originally hails, Melissa came to Ish Entertainment at its inception, and is currently developing reality and scripted shows.

- I think all problems can be solved with a cup of tea and a game of backgammon
- If I wasn’t in entertainment I would have been a doctor
