UPDATED: CAA veteran Adam Berkowitz, one of the agency’s most senior TV lit agents, has departed the talent agency after a lengthy tenure. A rep for CAA has confirmed that Berkowitz is no longer employed there, declining further comment.
The circumstances surrounding Berkowitz’s abrupt exit are unclear, but I hear there was an internal CAA investigation into the seasoned TV lit agent, who had overseen packaging for a slew of TV series. I also hear that there was an alleged incident at the Emmys Governors Ball that is related to Berkowitz’s departure from the agency. A rep for Berkowitz declined comment.
Berkowitz, known for his “old school” approach, had been at CAA for more than two decades and has been overseeing TV packaging in some capacity for the past 17 years.
