We are excited to be partnering with brilliant filmmakers, actors, and sound teams to create fresh, original stories for your ears,” said former CAA agent Herting, president of QCode.
Thompson’s upcoming projects include the third season of Westworld, the Disney reboot Lady and the Tramp and Rebecca Hall’sdirectorial debut Passing.
