If you can’t reach WME agents this week and think nobody’s working there, you’re not hallucinating. The tenpercentery is holding its retreat at La Costa resort starting Wednesday. Nice weather for it…
Where is WME holding its Golden Globes party this year? At new client Top Chef judge Tom Collichio’s Craft restaurant … in the CAA building. (See my previous, CAA Loses Top Chef Tom Colicchio To WME.)
The following WME’ers were promoted to agents last December: Beau Bryant (Digital), Ben Simone (TV-Nonscripted), Cody Irizarry (Voiceover), Drew Welborn (PA/Personal Appearance), EJ Johnson (TV-Nonscripted), Jad Dayeh (TV-Nonscripted), James Farrell (Talent), Jamie O’Hara (Commercials), Lance Alleman (PA/Country Music), Miles Gidaly (Commercials), Ryan Blake Jones (PA/Personal Appearance), Ryan Draizin (TV-Scripted), Scott Chaloff (Theatre), Shawn McDonald (Talent). Only 2 of the 14 are women. But WME reminds that in the last batch of promotions in June, 6 were women.
