“I had the great privilege of working with Traci on Women of the Movement and A million little things. On both series, she has been a thoughtful and trusted partner,“ said Kaplan. “I’m so grateful that she chose to join us all at Kapital.”
Prior to joining ABC, Myman was an associate litigation attorney at Youngerman & McNutt LLP and Gabriel & Herman LLP.
“I’ve had the chance to learn and work alongside some of Disney’s best and will miss my daily collaborations with them, but I’m thrilled to begin this new chapter with Aaron and his dynamic team at Kapital Entertainment,” Myman said.
Myman was replaced in the case by attorney David Fox.
