IT’S OFFICIAL – WMA & ENDEAVOR MERGE

April 27, 2009

Today, both the William Morris Agency and Endeavor’s Board of Directors voted yes to merge their two companies creating William Morris Endeavor (WME) Entertainment.  Of course the deal must go through regulatory scrutiny at the state level…plus the closing B.S…but there is a new landscape being plowed in the agency world. 

Combining the two rosters will make one fierce competitor for CAA, and leave the other full service agencies looking a little weak (UTA & Paradigm).  Now WME will be a real force in motion picture, TV, music, publishing, theatre, marketing, and more.  I don’t think you have seen the last merger in the agency world. 

Would love to know what you think.  And btw, don’t forget you can follow me on Twitter @ http://twitter.com/jimlewi

Speak with you soon…
