IPE offers full service representation in addition to creative development services for its clients which include proud members of the D.G.A., W.G.A., P.G.A., and the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

Joe began his career in the mailroom at UTA, before moving up to assistant for the next two years in departments including Motion Picture Talent, Literary, and Business Affairs. He left UTA for Chris Morgan Productions (CMP) at Universal as the assistant to writer/producer Chris Morgan, CMP’s VP of Production, and Director of Development. In his time there, CMP sold four pilots in its first season of TV development, with CMP / Imagine’s “Gang Related” ordered to series for 20th Century Fox. Joe worked on set in production for the entire first season of "Gang Related" before continuing on to work in production on notable films (Disney’s THE JUNGLE BOOK, WB's / New Line’s ANNABELLE, WB's / Working Title’s WE ARE YOUR FRIENDS) and series including “Masters of Sex” (SPTV / Showtime), “Sons of Anarchy” (Fox 21 / FX), “Stalker” (WBTV / CBS) and “Kevin from Work” (ABC Family).
In 2015, Fronk joined the premium cable/streaming network EPIX as the Coordinator of Original Programming, reporting to then-Head of Original Programming Jocelyn Diaz. Fronk played a key role in the network’s entry into the scripted originals landscape, working in Original Series (“Berlin Station”, “Get Shorty”, “Graves”) as well as Documentaries (SERENA, THE 4%: Film’s Gender Problem), Docu-Series (“America Divided”), and Live Events and Specials in Music & Comedy (“Tom Papa: Human Mule”, “Nick Offerman & Megan Mullally’s Summer of 69: No apostrophe”, “Wanda Sykes: What Happened Ms. Sykes?”). The department's success contributed significantly to MGM’s $1 Billion acquisition of the network in March 2017 from previous joint venture partners Paramount / Viacom and Lionsgate.
