Thomas has already made her exit, and we’re told this was entirely amicable. What prompted Roberts’ exit is unclear, but she’s still finishing up her time at the agency.

A veteran studio executive and producer previously based in London, Thomas moved to Los Angeles to join Paradigm as Motion Picture Lit Agent in the fall of 2022. Prior to her time there, she served as VP of Development at Working Title, before that working as Vice President of Creative Affairs at Legendary Pictures in Los Angeles. She began her career at Warner Bros, working her way up from executive assistant to creative executive, and eventually, to producer.

Joining Paradigm as Lit Agent in 2021, Roberts was formerly a manager at Industry Entertainment, having worked prior to that at Lawrence Bender Productions.
