The next Greenhouse Studio is coming up soon! Our guest this month is Erik Kritzer, a manager and producer who has helped guide some of Hollywood’s biggest stars. He’s going to share all his knowledge on what it takes to have a long-lasting and world-changing career in Hollywood. You don’t want to miss it, so register now!
In 1987, Erik Kritzer started his career in the mailroom at the William Morris Agency. Working as an assistant for legendary agents Ed Limato (Denzel Washington, Mel Gibson, Richard Gere) and then Sue Mengers (Richard Pryor, Barbra Streisand, Christopher Walken), Erik worked at WMA for six years knowing he wanted to eventually transition into management. When Phyllis Carlyle offered him a position as head of talent at her management/production company, Erik finally found his niche representing clients such as Willem Dafoe, Benecio Del Toro, and Michael Rooker. In 1997, Erik started his own company called Kritzer Entertainment located in Beverly Hills. The company was acquired by Immortal Entertainment, a music/film/production company. With Immortal, Erik continued to represent artists such as Ron Perlman, Esai Morales, Chuck Norris, Chevy Chase and Burt Reynolds. Erik then started LINK Entertainment which he has owned for 13 years with partners, Ben Levine and Brian Wilkins. The company today has 14 managers and 25 employees. Steadily expanding their production department, LINK has produced shows such as Amazon’s Hand of God and features All I See Is You, Sony’s upcoming Accident Man, as well as The TriBeCa Film darling, Dog Years and has over 64 clients on TV shows. After 30 years in the business, Erik still loves working with artists and creating opportunities for them to showcase their talents.
