NYC talent agency rebrands adding diversity in the agency ranks.

New York, NY. Release: June 1, 2020 For Immediate Release: Leading talent agency Plaza 7 Talent NYC today announced that it has rebranded as Crystal Ship Artists, a Talent and Literary Agency. Originally established in 2013 in New York City by Francesca Francois-Grimaldi, Plaza 7 NYC Inc, began as an extension of the Pennsylvania Plaza 7 Talent office run by Linda Wisch. Quickly becoming a New York City success and independently run, the company franchised and became signatories of SAG AFTRA, Equity and NATR.

Francesca Francois-Grimaldi, Chief Executive Officer at Crystal Ship Artists said, “Breaking away from Plaza 7 PA was beneficial for both companies and we hope to keep our close ties to the Philadelphia community while building a strong infrastructure that promotes positive and diverse representation. Our agency provides a fresh new approach to representing and supporting creatives who are independent and seek longevity in the marketplace. As long as the gatekeepers are overwhelmingly the same, then no real progress in diversity can be made.”

Crystal Ship Artists is proud of their actors, writers, directors and producers accomplishing their goals to succeed in the entertainment industry. Today the company counts among its clients Faizon Love, Isaiah Washington, CJ Wallace, Jennifer Williams, Erica Mena and Marla Maples.

Crystal Ship Artists is proud to be the sponsor of the Mini Indie Film and Television Festival in New York City. The festival celebrates trailers, sizzles and shorts under 12 mins in length.
