Another Screamer Gets the Boot

My texts lit up on Friday when Anonymous Content C.E.O. Dawn Olmstead announced that Oscar-nominated manager-producer Keith Redmon was out “effective immediately.” Three inside sources tell me Redmon, who represents directors like Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game) and was working on Anonymous’ international expansion, had been warned in the past about his verbally abusive behavior with assistants, co-workers and others.

According to one source at the Laurene Powell Jobs-backed management-production outfit, Redmon really lost his temper at a partners meeting pre-Covid, prompting several senior employees to formally complain. And earlier this month he is said to have berated someone on a company Zoom call. So Olmstead, who joined Anonymous in November from the much more buttoned-down NBCUniversal, showed him the door. Anonymous declined to comment and Redmon didn’t respond.
