Hug It Out?
William Morris Agency and Endeavor Agency, home to uber-agent Ari Emanuel, are either going to agree to merge or call the whole thing off, at least according to Deadline Hollywood blogger Nikki Finke.
The leadership team of Jim Wiatt and Dave Wirtschafter at WMA was reportedly eager for the merger but Endeavor’s people were still trying to see the upside for taking the risk.
“Dave and Jim have failed as leaders,” a source told Finke. “Yet they want the last hurrah and to let people think they’re in control. But they’ve got to let Ari lead and get out of the way.”
