Atlantis bows talent unit

Sussman calls move 'next logical step'

Toronto-based Atlantis Communications is venturing into the talent management arena with the launch of Atlantis Management, to be headed by former Walt Disney TV exec Stephen Pomerantz.

Based in Los Angeles, Atlantis Management already has signed a roster of about 20 clients, ranging from movie and TV thesps to scribes, producers and helmers.
