1,500 HOLLYWOOD AGENTS (How to Get One? Packaging, Literary or Talent?)


Yes you need an agent…an agent that gets phone calls returned, that believes in you, loves your ideas and specializes in the craft that you or your projects are in, such as… Talent, Literary, Packaging, Movie, TV, Non-Scripted, Music, Culinary, Sport, Speaker, Comics, Lectures, Commercials, VOs, Editing, Cinematography, Visual Effects, etc.

(The “Big 6” agencies, totaling over 1,500 agents, are WME, ICM, CAA, APA, UTA & Paradigm.) 


Now, cutting-to-the-chase here are the leading agencies in Hollywood, nicknamed the “Big 6”, and if you Google-Bing them with phrases like “talent agent”, “literary agent”, “non-scripted agent”, etc. you will get the specific names of agents you are about to target.

Once armed with the specific name of a “Big 6” agent, and you know some of his/her clients, it is now up to you to find a way to get a 1-minute one-to-one for your first pitch.

Everyone, now successful, has a different story of how they got their first agent with their first pitch…

What is your story going to be?

Now the “Big 6”.


(The Big 6)





(“CAA has over 1,000 agents. Surely there is one for you.”)














(“APA” packages (see below) include “Rosanne” & “Home Alone”.)





Now, with the “Big 6” Agencies, with 300-1,000 agents each, focus on the type you want; with someway of getting your first call answered.


Personally, I have a WME packaging (see below) agent specializing in non-scripted tv presenting four reality series (“Baby Spielberg”, “RockU”, “ChickFliXXX” & “First Job”) I created along with a 40-Episode “Film School” for Netflix, Facebook, Amazon or Google…   and 26 years ago I got my first agent by paying a maid to leave a script (mine) under the pillow of a studio exec, who called me irate but then gave me the name of an agent…just to get rid of me.

As I said, “everyone has a story on how they got their first agent”.

What is your story going to be?



If you’re an actor you want a talent agent. If a writer you want a literary agent. If a producer or director you want a packaging agent.

Packaging Agent? What’s a Packaging Agent?

Packaging Agents are part of large agencies, like the 6 above, who, within their agency represented Actors, Writers, Directors, Cinematographers, Production designers, Editors, Composers, etc. And with all the talent that agency has, they can actually put together an entire project (Writer, Actors, Director, Cinematographer, Editor, etc.) that is 100% ready-to-go and present it directly to the studios and networks.

A talent agent or literary agent usually earn 10%.

A packaging agent usually earns 5%.

However, the 5% packaging fee is 5-10 times bigger than the 10% talent fee.

Permit me to explain: If the project has 3 established actors (paid $100,000, $500,000 & $1,000,000 for Total $1,600,000) , 1 screenwriter (paid $200,000), and 1 director (paid $500,000) then 10% of $2,300,000 ($1,600,000/Talent + $200,000/Script + $500,000/Director) is $230,000.

However, the entire package (aka: The Movie), with a budget of $25,000,000 if sold to a studio (Warner, Paramount, Sony, etc) with the agent’s 5% becoming $1,250,000.

One Packaging Agent gets $1,250,000 whereas 3-5 Talent/Literary Agents combined only get $230,000.

I believe you see the financial incentive with getting represented by a packaging agency which each of the above 6 are.

But you say “you’re an actor and just want representation to get acting parts”… OK.



Since my expertise lies in Producing, Budgeting, Writing, Directing, Shooting, Distributing, Financing, etc. and not Acting I aggregated 5 articles (see below) on the subject of “How to Get an Agent… a Talent Agent”.

      I love the writing… not the selling. My first novel about the 1960s (second in the works) was published last year with excellent reviews and is doing well. I just completed the screenplay version; it would work as a feature-length film or extended television series. I’m in the market for an agent who can take the ball and run with it. What’s my next step?

  25. Jim Lynch says:

    Question. I recently completed a screenplay. I am looking to get a meeting with a big 6 agent to discuss my work and see if he or she would be willing to represent me moving forward. I got an email response back from a gatekeeper at one of the agencies stating that my unsolicited work will not be reviewed by anyone there unless it is presented by an “established entertainment representative.” What does “established entertainment representative” mean? Isn’t that an agent? Seems like a “catch 22”. Can’t get an agent to meet with me unless my work is presented by an “established entertainment representative”. How can I get my work seen unless by an “established entertainment representative if one is unwilling or unable to even meet with me due to company policy. Advice. Thanks. NEVER BE SATISFIED!
