WMA adds exec to TV lit

Returning agent brings 'great experience' to firm

The William Morris Agency is adding to its agent ranks, bringing in marketing exec Todd Berger as a tenpercenter in the TV lit department.

Move reps a homecoming for Berger, who spent several years as an WMA agent in the 1990s, working with clients such as Jerry Garcia, Gary Fleder, Alfred Gough and Miles Millar. He got his start in 1990 as a WMA trainee, working as an assistant to WMA agencts Mark Itkin and Steve Glick.

WMA lit topper Lanny Noveck said Berger brings “great experience” and “a tremendous eye for talent” to the agency.

“When he was here before, he made a tremendous mark representing directors, and we’re thrilled he’s going to come back now and also work with writers and producers,” Noveck said. “He’s going to have a great impact on the agency.”

Berger left WMA and started Giant Step Entertainment, a management/production shingle whose clients included scribe-helmer Kevin Kerslake. He later pacted with indie producer John Saviano (“The Suburbans”) to form Old School Prods.
