Siegel has managed the literary properties for the Estate of Roald Dahl since the year after one of the world's most beloved children's author's death in 1990. In addition to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Siegel has helped put together the films for other Dahl properties including James and the Giant Peach (Henry Selick, Tim Burton) and Matilda (Danny DeVito), as well as the upcoming The BFG (Kathy Kennedy) and Fantastic Mr. Fox (Wes Anderson).
Siegel manages other artists and properties including Elmore Leonard (Get Shorty, Out of Sight), the Estate of Philip K. Dick (Scanner Darkly, Blade Runner), William Joyce (Robots, A Day With Wilbur Robinson), Michael Cunningham (The Hours, A Home at the End of the World) and the character of Zorro.
Siegel has recently formed a crossover media company with a focus on family entertainment that puts the artists and intellectual property holders in a central position during a time of extraordinary change and opportunity.
Siegel lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two children.
