Jairo Alvarado joined management-production firm Circle of Confusion. Alvarado was a creative exec at Warner Bros. in 2009 and is credited for spotting Uruguayan director Fede Alvarez and his short Panic Attack! In 2011, while building a reputation for identifying up-and-coming talent, he joined 3 Arts Entertainment as a manager.
At Circle, he reps writer Brian Miller (All Our Yesterdays); photographer/filmmaker Greg Williams, who co-wrote and is attached to direct Samarkand, which has Tom Hardy attached to star; American Dad writer Jordan Blum; writer/ director Kealan O’Rourke (Emily the Strange); and Josh C.

Alvarado's eye to develop high concepts and genre work is what led him to Circle, which produces The Walking Dead. The show is coming off an amazing mid-winter debut that saw the show, which drew 15.8 million viewers, outperform the Olympics in the 19-49 demo.
