Lovett

Co-Chairman / Agent, Motion Picture Literary

Lovett and his fellow CAA co-chairmen Kevin Huvane and Bryan Lourd burnished their reputations with yet another industry-shaping move, acquiring rival “big four” agency ICM in a deal announced in September 2021. Under Lovett’s leadership, the agency has in recent years grown from a traditional talent agency into a multi-tentacled conglomerate that employs 1,900 people from Los Angeles to Beijing in a diverse array of divisions encompassing everything from sports marketing and film & TV production to venture capital. He also continues normal agenting activities, such as working with the CAA Finance Team to broker the July 2021 agreement for Apple Studios to acquire worldwide rights to slavery drama “Emancipation,” starring his client Will Smith, in a deal reportedly worth as much as $120 million.
