Melrose Placed is a pioneering talent management and production company committed to purpose-driven artists and projects that are breaking barriers.

Founded in 2017, we work with real people to tell real stories. Artists come to us with an open mind and a willingness to embrace opportunities, and we push them outside their perceived boundaries.

Our goal is the bigger picture of making the unexpected, expected: helping artists to realize opportunities they hadn’t considered, helping execute projects that are unique and intentional to gain momentum, and helping audiences to look beyond preconceptions.

We believe that media has the power to have a positive impact on society, and we’re here to accomplish great things through our work.

Let’s have fun doing it.
