TV Comedy Titan Chuck Lorre Signs with UTA

UTA has scored another coup in the comedy realm in signing uber-showrunner Chuck Lorre for representation in all areas.

Lorre had been between agencies for some time following the move of his longtime rep Bob Broder from ICM Partners to a post running Lorre’s Warner Bros. TV-based production company.

“We are thrilled to be working with Chuck, whose creativity knows no bounds and whose voice we look forward to expanding across all media,” said UTA managing director Jay Sures, who will lead a team of agents repping Lorre.

Lorre is the most prosperous showrunner in broadcast TV comedy these days as the exec producer of CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory,” “Mom” and “Mike & Molly.” He has a wide-ranging overall deal at Warners that also encompasses film and theater projects.

UTA’s signing of Lorre comes a month after it shook up the agency world when more than a dozen agents exited CAA for UTA, bringing with them such clients as Will Ferrell and Chris Pratt.
