Veteran unscripted agent Ryan Wackerman is coming to APA after an 11-year run at ICM Partners.
Wackerman (pictured) joins APA as senior vice president, alternative & factual programming, reporting directly to Hayden Meyer, APA’s head of alternative and factual programming.
During Wackerman’s time at ICM, his client roster included 3 Ball Productions, Big Coat Media, Frank, Grandma’s House Entertainment, Workaholic Productions, and ZnakTV, as well as executive producers on series such as American Idol, Alone, The Bachelor, Big Brother, Homestead Rescue, Love & Hip Hop, Queer Eye, Selling Sunset and Top Chef, among others.
“We are looking forward to working with Ryan to incorporate his impressive roster of show creators, showrunners, production companies, and on-camera talent into APA’s content creation–focused ecosystem. We’ve been extremely successful in this area over the past few years, and the acquisition of a talent like Ryan will ensure we stay on a growth trajectory,” said Meyer and Kyle Loftus, APA’s head of content development, in a joint statement.
Wackerman joined the international television & media department at ICM in 2011 from Kaplan Stahler Agency, where he worked in the reality division with Sean Zeid, who he rejoins at APA. Other former ICM colleagues of Wackerman’s now working at APA include alternative & factual programming agents Seth Lawrence and Katie Kolben.
