Another Setback for Bill O’Reilly

Oct 26, 2017  •  Post A Comment

On the heels of being dropped by talent agency UTA, as we reported Wednesday, now Bill O’Reilly has also been dropped by his literary agency, William Morris, the AP reports.

The report quotes an announcement today from William Morris Entertainment that says: “We no longer represent Bill O’Reilly for future deals. It is our fiduciary responsibility to service the existing deals we have under contract, but we will not be working with him moving forward.”

O’Reilly spokesman Mark Fabiani said he wasn’t commenting “at the moment.”

The report notes that O’Reilly has a multi-book deal with publisher Henry Holt & Company that includes at least one more “Killing” book.

“In May, Holt president and publisher Stephen Rubin told The Associated Press that he was ‘totally committed to Bill, long-term,'” the story reports. At the time, Rubin reportedly said: “We have created the most successful adult nonfiction franchise in recent publishing history and we are thrilled to continue it.”

The latest book in the series, “Killing England,” came out last month, following a string of successful releases that has included “Killing Kennedy” and “Killing Lincoln.”
