EXCLUSIVE: What I reported on Monday is now official. The memo just went out at ICM that motion picture talent agent Scott Schachter has exited. He’s starting Monday at UTA, where his two best friends are already agents — Chris Hart, who left ICM for UTA a year ago, and Mike Jelline, who left ICM for UTA five weeks ago. Schachter’s and Jelline’s defections follow ICM’s recent decision to merge its TV and motion picture talent departments and “restructure leadership”. Before that, the TV talent department was overseen by Jelline and the motion picture talent group was co-headed by Schachter who declined to sign another contract when three colleagues were promoted above him.
