Former WME trio form Verve

Agents team on talent-lit agency

Former WME agents Bryan Besser, Adam Levine and Bill Weinstein have formed talent-lit agency Verve.

The partners, who made the announcement Monday, worked for some 10 years at the William Morris Agency and went on to WME following WMA’s merger with Endeavor in April.

We believe that in the ever-changing marketplace of today, artists need a focused, entrepreneurial, team-oriented group of agents,” the partners said in a statement. “Verve will shift the emphasis from an agency-first culture to artist-first representation.”

Clients moving to the percentery include helmer Joe Kosinski (“Tron Legacy”) and writers Michael Arndt (“Toy Story 3”) and Aaron Guzikowski (the upcoming “Prisoners”).
