Exodus to Endeavor

Fineman moves with roster to new agency

Agent Ross Fineman is moving to Endeavor, bringing with him a slew of writers, producers and helmers from his former home at Major Clients Agency.

Among the clients making the trek: feature scribes Jack Bernstein (“Ace Ventura: Pet Detective”), Robert Roy Pool (“Outbreak,” “Armageddon”) and Alexander Stuart (“The War Zone”), and small-screen producer Jonathan Pontell (“Boston Public,” “The Practice”).

Television helmers Andrew Tsao (“Friends,” “Home Improvement”), Jack Bender (“Ally McBeal”) and Alan Myerson (“Frasier,” “The Larry Sanders Show”) have also shifted to Endeavor with Fineman.

‘Momentum’ at Endeavor

“In a short period of time, Endeavor has gained incredible momentum, and offers an environment I feel I can thrive in,” Fineman said. “I’m thrilled for me and my clients.”

Fineman had been with Major Clients Agency for six years. His other clients include Cyrus Nowratesh (“The Day Reagan Was Shot”), Obie winner Susan Miller (“My Left Breast”) and writing duo Jeremy Miller and Dan Cohn. Latter two scribes are currently writing and producing for the David E. Kelley skein “Boston Public” and the latest feature adaptation of “Courtship of Eddie’s Father.”
