Boutique production company Imposter welcomes Zach Woods to its roster for North American representation.

Woods is best known as Jared Dunn on HBO's Silicon Valley and Gabe Lewis on NBC’s globally beloved sitcom The Office. He's appeared in many TV and film roles including HBO's Avenue 5, Veep, The Good Wife, and Steven Spielberg's The Post. He now stars in The Afterparty, streaming on Apple TV.

Woods has also applied his talents for nuanced comedy to directing and writing. He is currently showrunning, directing, and acting in the upcoming series In the Know, which he co-created with Mike Judge and Brandon Gardner, coming soon to Peacock.

His directorial debut David, a dark comedy starring Will Ferrell and William Jackson Harper, was the only US short film selected for the 2020 Cannes Film Festival, and screened at many other festivals including Telluride, TIFF, and Clermont Ferrand. His more recent Bud was selected as a Vimeo Staff Pick and stars Michael Peña as a loving father whose daughter’s birthday takes a troubling turn.  

For his commercial debut, Woods directed three spots for office supply retailer with agency Fear Not - comedically highlighting the risks of 'settling.' More recently, he teamed up with Anomaly LA and his The Office costars Leslie David Baker and Phyllis Smith to shoot a series of Cheerios commercials featuring a talking bee, while his latest campaign for Google Play Games stars comedian Caitlin Reilly.

Woods comments: “I want to approach the work I do at Imposter with warmth, humanity, and humour, on camera and off. The folks there are kind, well-intended, and they work their asses off. I'm excited to be in their midst. Also - the company name resonates deeply with my sense of self. Just kidding. Mostly.”

Avtar Kay, EP at Imposter, comments: “With a notable career in front of the camera, Zach has earnestly embraced his new role behind the camera, bringing a fresh and invaluable insight to his commercial directing. It simply comes naturally to him: with only three campaigns under his belt, he already seems like a seasoned pro. Zach’s artistic sensibility, astute wit, and comedic timing infuse a distinctive charm into all of his projects. Aside from his incredible talent and taste, Zach is perhaps one of the most lovely humans you will ever meet and a true pleasure to work with.”

She adds: “We’ve always focused on fostering new and exciting talent by creating a collaborative environment for them to grow and learn. Zach already has a prolific career in film and TV, and having the opportunity to introduce his directing talents to our market is exciting. It’s a true testament to the reputation Imposter has built as a creative-first production company.”
