Client: Jeff B. Cohen, Esq. - Partner
Cohen Gardner is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. Continuing his dealmaking trajectory, Cohen, co-founder of the boutique firm, repped comedian Ronny Chieng in his deal with Netflix for three upcoming comedy specials, and screenwriter-producer Eydie Faye in her deal with Nickelodeon for the new Jojo Siwa live-action musical “The J-Team.” Cohen also handled deals for Lil Rel Howery to star in “Vacation Friends” and “Free Guy,” host and executive produce the game show “Small Fortune” on NBC, as well as his deal to act and executive produce “Home,” starring Kathy Bates.
Buyers and Artists: Cohen sees two distinct trends emerging: “Power is consolidating among a smaller number of buyers, and the ability to create content and connect with fans is increasing simultaneously with artists.”
