EXCLUSIVE: Director and actress and producer Penny Marshall has signed with Shelter Entertainment Group President Alan Iezman for management, and with APA for agency representation in all area.  The helmer of such classics as Big, Awakenings (an Oscar Best Picture contender), and A League Of Their Own was the first female director to gross in excess of $100 million at the U.S. box office. Marshall also starred as the iconic LaVerne DeFazio on ABC’s hit show Laverne and Shirley from 1976-1983. We all need a little more Penny right now.
