Stevie

Scripted Series

Judy & Liza & Robert & Freddie & David & Sue & Me, the memoir written by Judy Garland’s manager and female power agent Stevie Phillips, is being adapted into a ‘Mad Men’-style television series,  following the story of Phillips’ rise from secretary to tour manager to agent to producer in a pre-MeToo era. Starting as a secretary at CMA (which later became ICM), and moving swiftly up the ranks to become Judy Garland’s tour manager, Phillips went on to manage Garland’s daughter Liza Minnelli as well as Robert Redford, Paul Newman, Henry Fonda, George Roy Hill, Bob Fosse, Cat Stevens, and David Bowie. Sue Mengers, who worked with Stevie at CMA, will also be featured. A true inspiration who paved the way for women in the entertainment industry, Stevie is an unapologetic, strategic force of nature who in her own words ‘learned to play her cards close to her chest and never fold.’

"Phillips' voice is tough and smart, just as she was...the hopeful, smart ending teaches much about humans, stars or not."
