Our goal in this work is two-fold:
According to one report, the agents were fired by William Morris before they could obtain financing. An early plan was to form a medium-sized full-service agency, share proceeds equally, and do without nameplates on doors or formal titles or individual client lists, with guidelines like "be a team player" and "return phone calls promptly.
Talent agent Jay Moloney was originally part of the transition but due to his drug addiction, he was fired and later committed suicide. Init opened a New York City office to manage theatre clients.
Agents are the core of the business, the behind-the-scenes players, putting together deals, while the public focus is on the moviemakers and actors and TV and film shows that they bring together. For some agents, CAA is a training ground to learn the business, and they leave after a few years sometimes to form their own talent agencies.

In effect, CAA would do the minimally required legal tasks of passing along required offers but otherwise staying uninvolved.

The agency can use its more glamorous clients in film and TV to craft deals with steadier income streams; for example, using clients such as Julia Robertsthey can assemble marketing programs for less glamorous clients,  such as Nationwide Insurance.
