TGA: AGENCY #6 (20 Agents, Names & contacts)
by Dov S-S Simens on July 22, 2015
HISTORY of TGA
Phil Gersh, the founder, had massive ambition, and this led him from humble office boy to opening his own Beverly Hills agency in 1949.
Today TGA has 125 employees, 60 agents and offices in Beverly Hills and New York, Gersh maintains seven full-service departments: Talent, Feature Literary, TV Literary, Theater, Comedy, Below-the-Line, and a modeling agency.
Mr Gersh worked his way up to agenting acclaimed directors and actors such as Humphrey Bogart, Richard Burton, David Niven, Karl Malden, June Allyson and William Holden.
The Gersh Agency, often referred to as Gersh or TGA, upholds a “quality over quantity” philosophy, maintaining an intimate boutique environment focusing on galvanizing emerging actors and taking care of their talent for long-term career goals.
TGA thrust Tobey Maguire into the limelight with the Spider-Man franchise and negotiated Canadian unknown Hayden Christensen into the role of a young Darth Vader in the second Star Wars trilogy.
Unlike most full service talent agencies, TGA is known for maintaining a significantly low roster of clients, thus insuring its senior agents aren’t spread too thin. In addition to noteworthy Literary and Below-the-Line departments, the agency also has a solid comedy division that includes Dave Chappelle, Patton Oswalt and John Oliver of The Daily Show.
Of the Big 7 agencies, Gersh is the only one without an in-house corporate sponsor/investor telling them how to expand… However, under the direction of Phil’s two sons, Bob Gersh and David Gersh, the agency has slowly grown, but without outside influence, and broadened its business. In 2009 it hired JAY COHEN to establish a motion picture packaging and financing division and it recently hired Marie Perry to establish a Below-The-Line (Cinematographers, Editors, Composers, etc) division.

Let’s now hope my query letter is good enough to get the agents to call me back to request the full script. Launching a career has never been so hard
The film Dunkirk was incredibly successful having earned for Warner Brothers $188 million U.S. and over $526 million world-wide at last count. Additionally, it won an Academy Award. My novel, The Last Lieutenant, is the American equivalent and has the same potential, possibly more. Here is why.
Dunkirk was about the Allies, Britain and France, on their backs with the Germans pounding them on the beaches. After that, Hitler swept over nearly all of Europe, conquering everything in his path. Along the way, he formed the Axis, the Tripartite Pact with the Italians, Japanese and eighteen other smaller governments including Vichy France. He lost the Battle of Britain in September 1940 but went on, undeterred in June 1941 invading Russia along an unheard of 1,700-mile front.
With that, Prime Minister WINSTON CHURCHILL and President FRANKLYN ROOSEVELT met for the first time, when their warships anchored in an out of the way cove in Argentina, Newfoundland, in August 1941. Four days later, they had formed the Atlantic Charter which recognized that they would soon be warring against all the Axis powers and that for the time being, they could not fight a two-ocean war. There simply was not enough manpower or armaments. Their decision: Europe First. Neutralize and halt the hideous fascist campaigns until enough resources could be marshalled to defeat the Germans and later, the Japanese. Europe First.
Four months later, the U.S. was confronted with the same dilemma in the Pacific. Right after the Pearl Harbor attack, the Japanese went on a bloody campaign all over the Western Pacific, taking so much territory that by June of 1942, it was estimated they occupied 1/7th of the planet.
In other words, strategic challenges in the siege of Dunkirk, had very similar elements to the siege of Corregidor and the ultimate conquest of the Western Pacific.
In early 1942, the Japanese drove down the Bataan Peninsula on Luzon in the Philippines, and eventually occupied Corregidor Island. They desperately needed Corregidor for access to Manila Bay, thirty miles across and one of the largest harbors in the world. At one time it was estimated that Manila Bay could provide a safe anchorage for every vessel afloat in the world.
Also, the Japanese needed Manila Bay as a safe harbor for its ships carrying critical war materials from Southeast Asia to Japan, thus fulfilling their promise of the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere. But Corregidor stood at the entrance to Manila Bay. And defending Corregidor were over 11,000 American GIs. Also, scattered about the Philippine archipelago of about 7,000 islands, were another 120,000 Phil-American troops, most of them on Luzon.
Roosevelt and Churchill knew they couldn’t save those men if it came to a fight. They had to abandon them,
Thus, The Last Lieutenant is the story of Navy Lieutenant TODD INGRAM and his escape with ten men from Corregidor the night the island fell to the Japanese. Ingram shoved off in a 36-foot motor launch on a journey through the Philippine archipelago, mostly under the cover of night, en route to freedom at Darwin Australia. It also is the story of Ingram rescuing the girl he loves, Army nurse HELEN DURAND from the Japanese Kempetai, their secret police. But before Ingram can get to Australia, or rescue Helen Duran, he must first find WALTER RADTKE, an Abwehr spy, masquerading as an American sailor, who knows the USN’s top secret plans for the defense of Midway.
A synopsis is available to explain more about The Last Lieutenant. The work was originally published in hardcover by St. Martin’s Press in 1995. It went to softcover in 1997. But now, all rights have reverted to me and it is still available on Amazon and Kindle.
