EXCLUSIVE: In a surprising move, Ryan Ly has exited Creative Artists Agency after 12 years, most recently as the head of the agency’s TV lit department.

After a brief stint at UTA right after college, Ly started at CAA in 2005. He had been a rising star at the agency where his clients have included Better Call Saul showrunner Peter Gould, Castle Rock co-creator creator Sam Shaw, and Good Girls Revolt Dana Calvo.

Details about the circumstances surrounding Ly’s sudden departure are sketchy but sources say it was the agency’s decision to part ways with its long-time agent over sexual harassment policy violations following an alleged incident at the CAA Emmy party.
