Aaron Kaplan

Manager Kaplan/Perrone Entertainment

Aaron Kaplan, founding partner of Kaplan/Perrone Entertainment spent the first 22 years of his life in Chicago. After graduating from Northwestern University he came up through the UTA Trainee Program, where he and fellow UTA trainee Sean Perrone recognized the need for forward-thinking, creatively involved literary representatives. In 2000, the two decided to strike out on their own, forming management company Kaplan/Perrone Entertainment. Today, they represent some of the industry’s most successful writers, directors, showrunners, and creators. Kaplan/Perrone also has a production wing: each of their feature films has grossed over $100M world-wide, and they previously had a pod deal with Universal Cable Productions, a division of NBC/Universal.
