UTA has hired Comedy Central executive Miro Terrell, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
She will be based in New York and represent both comedic actors and writers for television, and also help package comedy specials for the agency's clients.
That expertise comes from Terrell's time as director of talent and specials at Comedy Central, where she worked on stand-up specials including Pete Davidson: SMD, Roy Wood Jr.: Father Figure, Dan Soder: Not Special, Nate Bargatze: Full Time Magic and four seasons of The Half Hour, which saw specials from Michael Che, Chris DiStefano and Nikki Glaser. Terrell spent seven years in the Talent & Specials group, where she scouted talent and programmed them into the network's development pipeline, after joining the network in 2009 in the Talent & Records group.
Terrell began her career as a casting associate and office production assistant on commercial shoots for production companies including Hungry Man, Moxie and Smuggler. She graduated from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts theater program with a BFA in design and directing in 2007.
