Whitney Dibo has joined production and management company Anonymous Content in the newly created role of Director of Theatrical Acquisitions. Dibo brings with her years of experience working as Director of Development & Acquisitions at The Weinstein Company, and as a creative executive at Scott Rudin Productions.
At Anonymous Content, Dibo will scout theatre productions on and Off-Broadway, regionally, and in the U.K. with an eye towards film and television adaptation. She will also work closely with playwrights to develop film and TV projects.
“I couldn’t think of a better home for playwrights who want to work in television and film than Anonymous Content,” said Dibo, who started her job in April. “It’s so exciting that these incredible writers and stories can reach a wider audience through this work, and I’m thrilled to be part of it.”
Anonymous’ screen projects include Mr. Robot, 13 Reasons Why, The OA, Spotlight, The Revenant, Babel, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and True Detective, among others.
“We are thrilled to add Whitney to our growing team, so we can mine the multitude of compelling stories currently being told theatrically," according to a statement from Anonymous Content. "Her roots and relationships in the theatre community are incredibly strong, and her instincts on what will transfer successfully from stage to screen will be a tremendous boon to all of us here at Anonymous Content.”
Dibo received her MFA in Dramaturgy and Dramatic Criticism from The Yale School of Drama, where she was a co-artistic director of the Yale Cabaret. She has taught script analysis and dramaturgy at Emerson College, and worked at Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago.
