An intimate conversation and Q&A with Hockaday School alum and industry expert, Rogers Hartmann.
While attending the University of Texas at Austin, Rogers made her way to Los Angeles each summer, where she worked on a number of Roger Corman films and worked for Geena Davis during the release of Thelma and Louise.
After graduating UT, Rogers moved to LA and was hired to assist a top literary agent and began signing writers, directors and authors. For over 10 years as an agent at Sanford-Gross, Rogers worked with such clients as Nick Kazan, Richard Price and Ron Shelton, to name a few - then opened her own boutique literary agency. Since then she has transitioned to management and producing.
Currently, her production company, Greenway Productions has partnered with Ridley Scott and Michael Costigan on Everybody Hates the Phone Company.
She is also working with Robert Rodat (Saving Private Ryan
) on an adaption of Beautiful Jim Key
by Mim Eichler Rivas.
In addition to her work in film and television, Rogers is a well-known activist for Dystonia and other neurological disorders and diseases. She has appeared on Oprah
