Erica Bines-Schepard

Founder, Executive Vice President

Ever since Erica can remember, acting has been her passion. After working as a child actor in television and film, she came to realize that musical theatre was her true calling. Her college career began at Syracuse University in their BFA Musical Theatre Program. However, after studying in London her sophomore year, she decided to move to New York City, where she graduated with a BA in Theatre and a Double Minor in Directing and Musical Theatre from Marymount Manhattan College. Soon afterwards, warm weather, beaches, and “the industry” brought her out west to Los Angeles, where she began her career as an Agent Trainee at United Talent Agency. She was put on a signing team at only 22 years old, and it was during this time that she came to realize that the big agency life wasn’t for her. She then had the pleasure of working for the CEO of The WB Television Network as his assistant. Nearly one year later, after her boss was let go as CEO, she found her way back to the agency world. This time, however, was completely different than before. She started as a junior agent and shortly thereafter, she became a talent agent, working for Global Artists Agency for three years. In the summer of 2006, Erica relocated back to New York City where she headed up Bloc New York’s Theatrical Department, growing it to over 50 working clients. Bloc decided to refocus their efforts, which in turn, lead Erica to rethink her career ambitions. Due to her incredible training in LA and the amazing relationships she had spent years cultivating in both NY and LA, she decided it was time to go out on her own. Thus, Headline Talent Agency was born.

Erica enjoys spending time with her husband, Matt, and their two dogs.
