EXCLUSIVE: Bash Naran, literary director and producer at Writ Large, is leaving the company to become an agent in WME’s Scripted Television department. He will be based in the agency’s Beverly Hills office.
During his more than three and a half years at Writ Large, Naran has represented writers, directors and producers with a focus on diverse, underrepresented and international creators with unique and multicultural perspectives. Many of his clients should follow him.
Prior to his move to Write Large, Naran served as literary director at Jeremy Platt’s Plattform for two and a half years. During his career as a manager, Naran has worked with clients such as Oscar and Emmy nominee and DGA award winner Smriti Mundhra (Indian Matchmaking, St. Louis Superman), Ali Selim (Marvel’s Secret Invasion), Matthew Chauncey (Marvel’s What if…?), David Coggeshall (Paramount’s Orphan: first murderWarner Bros.’ Thundercats), Des Moran (Peacock’s queer as folk) and Anna Klassen (When lightning strikes, by Netflix Dorothy and Alice).
“Bash is a wonderful representative, colleague and friend! He and his singing will be truly missed, but we are thrilled to continue supporting him in the next stage of his career,” the Writ Large partners said in a statement.
Naran began his entertainment career at CAA in the Entertainment Marketing group, where he assisted clients such as Canada Goose, Chipotle, General Motors, and Fender Guitars, among others. Prior to that, Naran was Chief Marketing Officer of New York-based Doucce Cosmetics.
Naran is co-founder of The Salon, a forum for artists and South Asian entertainment executives to connect and collaborate, share resources, facilitate mentorship and drive public advocacy. Co-founded by Nik Dodani and Vinny Chhibber, the organization launched a mentorship program to develop diaspora creatives and executives with the help of Rishi Rajani (CEO, Hillman Grad) and Reena Singh (EVP, Disney Branded Television).
