He joins the agency after three years at United Talent Agency (UTA), where he worked with Participant Media-owned content studio SoulPancake and its founder Rainn Wilson, as well as Propagate Content, Ugly Brother Studios, Monami Entertainment, Texas Crew Productions and Joel Gallen.
Other clients also include showrunners and executive producers Sean Rankine and Mark G.

Before UTA, Lawrence spent 13 years as an agent at Rebel Entertainment Partners.
“Seth is a stellar agent with an exceptional eye for talent in the unscripted space, and a true passion for our business, and we know he will be a great addition to our department at this exciting time in our industry,” said Kagan in a statement.
