June 26, 2014

Fullscreen announced on Wednesday that it has signed a talent management deal with YouTube personality Jenn McAllister, aka JennXPenn.

Fullscreen’s talent management group, led by Larry Shapiro, plans to take a 360-degree approach to 17-year-old McAllister’s career by building a comprehensive business strategy around her, including licensing, and connecting her “geek-chic” personality with opportunities in TV, film, the digital space and live events.

McAllister’s signing marks the first “network-agnostic” management deal for Fullscreen, which has its own YouTube multi-channel network, featuring top digital personalities including Grace Helbig, Shane Dawson, The Fine Bros., Tyler Ward and Yousef Saleh Erakat (aka FouseyTube).

McAllister will be appearing at Fullscreen’s booth (#813) at VidCon on Friday at 2 p.m.
