Midler divines future with ICM

Thesp ankles Endeavor

ICM is betting it can build a better Bette.

Bette Midler has ankled the Endeavor agency for International Creative Management, which will represent the award-winning performer and recording star in all areas except personal appearances.

Midler’s recent foray to the small screen was brief: It ended last March, after the 16 episodes of the ColumbiaTriStar skein that bore her name failed to ignite on the Eye web.

Her acting has earned her two Academy Award nominations, two Emmy Awards, four Grammy Awards, a Tony Award and four Golden Globe Awards. As a recording artist, Midler has won several Grammy Awards for her albums, several of which have gone platinum and yielded No. 1 hits.

She most recently starred on film in the ensemble drama “Drowning Mona,” opposite Danny DeVito, and in “Isn’t She Great,” with Nathan Lane.

Midler is also the founder and co-head, with partner Bonnie Bruckheimer, of her own production company, All Girl Prods. All Girl is currently producing the Warner Bros. film “Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood.”

Midler’s film credits include the Oscar-nominated “The Rose” and “For the Boys,” as well as “Get Shorty,” “The First Wives Club” and “Down and Out in Beverly Hills.”
