Zoe Levine

As an LA native, film, tv, and pop culture have always been a big part of Zoe’s life so it was only natural that that love led her to a career in the entertainment industry. Honing her skills across many different types of fast-paced environments, Zoe began her career in the mailroom at WME before landing on desks in the TV Lit department and at Endeavor Content. She then went on to work at BRON Studios where she cut her teeth working across their film and tv development slate. As a Creative Executive, Zoe worked at a small talent-led production company where she oversaw a robust slate of multiple projects at various stages of development before joining Big Beach in 2022. In her free time, she loves going to concerts, playing with her dog, Stevie, and catching up on The Real Housewives.
