I’m told Matt Solo left ICM today and will probably land at Endeavor. Chalk up another casualty of the ICM-Broder Webb Chervin Silbermann merger. Solo, formerly head of TV literary, reps David Shore (creator of House), Tim Minear (overall TV deal at Fox) and Shawn Ryan (creator of The Shield). I understand all of Solo’s clients are in play, and ICM expects several to remain. From what I understand, Solo asked for a big salary boost and ICM didn’t bite. Plus, there were some personality conflicts. “Matt overestimated his value to the agency, and was not fitting into the new culture post the acquisition,” a source explained. In the end, Solo’s leaving was a mutual decision.
