CAA has acquired Peleton Entertainment, a full-service agency that works in the areas of unscripted and scripted TV, film, documentaries and digital content. As part of the deal, the latest in a trend of consolidation in the field, Peleton president and founder Rob Miller will join CAA’s New York office and colleague Daniel Pine the the Los Angeles office. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Before forming Peleton, Miller was an agent at news biz rep N.S. Bienstock, which was acquired by UTA in January 2014. Pine previously worked at Management 360 and William Morris Agency.
Peleton reps a broad range of clients including Loud TV (FYI’s Tiny House Nation), Paper Route Productions (Discovery’s Yukon Men, HGTV’s Garage Gold, Destination America’s Buying Alaska), Screaming Flea (A&E’s Hoarders), Violet Media (TLC’s My Strange Addiction) and Rosetta Media (syndicated series The Pinkertons) among others. The company also has expertise in co-production financing and distribution rights.
CAA’s Alternative Television group, led by co-heads Eric Wattenberg (also formerly at N.S. Bienstock) and Alan Braun, has sold more than 240 unscripted packages over the past four years and has almost 100 reality series on broadcast and cable.
