TV Agent Haskell Writing Book

Retired television agent Sam Haskell is writing a book about how he survived the "shark-filled waters" of the entertainment industry with his integrity intact.

Haskell, who retired from William Morris Agency three years ago at age 49, worked with Bill Cosby, Martin Short, Whoopi Goldberg, Lily Tomlin, Dolly Parton and Ray Romano, but says it’s not a tell-all book.

It is expected to be published by Ballantine Books late 2008 or early 2009.
