Hotchkiss and Associates, Inc. opened its doors in New York City in January, 2002-four months after the World Trade Center disaster.  The company was founded by and is run by Jody Hotchkiss, who spent eleven years at the literary agency Sterling Lord Literistic as a film/television agent.  Previously, Jody was the Vice President for East Coast Production at MGM, and he started his career at Crown Publishers.

Sean Daily joined Hotchkiss and Associates in 2004 having worked and taught in film production and having served as the Director of Submissions for Chicago Community Cinema (now the Midwest Independent Film Festival.) Sean represents for film and television a wide range of literary and commercial fiction and non-fiction, but his particular areas of interest include character-rich non-fiction, sports stories, elevated sci-fi and horror, and unique children’s books. He is a graduate of the University of Chicago, where he concentrated in Cinema and Media Studies and Music.
