LONDON — RDF Media, the U.K. shingle behind “Wife Swap,” is closing its talent management business as part of an economy drive that will see the company concentrate on its core production activities.
RDF Management reps more than 130 clients in Blighty. These include thesps, TV presenters, comics and script writers. It has a staff of five agents and three support staff.
RDF Management founder Debi Allen is setting up Debi Allen Associates and will take agent Craig Latto with her.
Michael Joyce will set up Michael Joyce Management while Vic Murray is launching Vic Murray Talent.
Thesps Bradley Walsh and Melissa George are among those repped by RDF Management. RDF, which employs around 500 people, is implementing a $3 million savings program as part of a cost-cutting exercise.
