Josephson Joins Endeavor

Aug 8, 2006  •  Post A Comment

Former International Creative Management Co-President Nancy Josephson is joining rival talent agency Endeavor as a partner, and is taking some of her top clients with her.

Ms. Josephson, who was forced out of ICM in late July as the firm was buying the Broder Webb Chervin Silbermann Agency, is taking such clients to Endeavor as “Friends” co-creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman and talk show host and executive producer Tyra Banks. She is also bringing along producers Yvette Lee Bowser (“Living Single”); Ted Cohen (“Friends”); Joyce Eliason (“Riding the Bus with My Sister”); Jeffrey Klarik (“The Class”); John Levenstein (“Arrested Development”); Greg Malins (“Will & Grace” and “How I Met Your Mother”); Stephen Nathan (“Bones”); Marc Platt (“Legally Blonde”); Andrew Reich (“Friends”); Elwood Reid (“Close to Home”); John Ridley (“Three Kings”); and Sue Tenney (“7th Heaven”).

“I’m very excited to be joining Endeavor as a partner,” Ms. Josephson said in a statement Tuesday. “Since I arrived at the agency this morning, I have been overwhelmed by welcoming agents, all asking how they can pitch in and help with my clients. The culture is so team-oriented and I look forward to contributing here for a long time to come.”

A Harvard-trained lawyer, Ms. Josephson will be the 20th partner at Endeavor. Her father Marvin was one of the founders of ICM. She was with that firm for 20 years.
