Glossy: Ambition, Beauty and the Inside Story of Emily Weiss’s Glossier was released on September 13 by Simon & Schuster. According to the book’s publisher, Marisa Meltzer combines in-depth interviews with former Glossier employees, investors, and Weiss herself to bring you inside the walls of this fascinating and secretive company. From fundraising to product launches and unconventional hiring practices, Meltzer exposes the inner workings of Glossier’s culture, culminating in the story of Weiss herself.
Beer is coming off making her directorial debut with Pet Sematary: Bloodlines for Paramount+, which she also wrote. She previously wrote and executive produced the Netflix teen dramedy Sierra Burgess Is A Loser starring Noah Centineo and Shannon Purser. She is repped by CAA, Brillstein Entertainment Partners and Gang Tyre.
Beer’s Lab Brew was established with the mission of empowering writers, directors, and actors to be the center of the storytelling process and telling stories with fresh and diverse perspectives across film, television, and digital. Banks and Walken serve as Vice Presidents. Other upcoming TV and film projects include Searching for Susie Thunder, based on the true story of one of the most infamous hackers in the 1980s; Wilderness Reform, based on the upcoming novel of the same name; and Sleepy Hollow at Paramount Pictures, which Anderson Beer will also write and direct.
