Who got signed, promoted, hired or fired? The Hollywood Reporter’s Rep Sheet rounds up the week in representation news. To submit announcements for consideration, contact rebecca.sun@thr.com.

A voice from the South

Tim McGraw has signed with PMK*BNC for publicity. The singer and actor appeared on the Oscars on Sunday to perform Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me’s Academy Award-nominated song “I’m Not Gonna Miss You.” Ten of McGraw’s albums have topped Billboard’s country charts, and the three-time Grammy winner has also collected 14 Academy of Country Music awards, 11 CMAs, 10 AMAs and three People’s Choice Awards.

Another voice from the South

Dallas alum Josh Henderson has made a couple of rep changes, signing with UTA and Management 360. The actor – who really is a Dallas native – starred in TNT’s continuation of the classic soap as John Ross Ewing, the heir of Larry Hagman’s iconic J.R. He continues to be repped by attorney John V. Miegs Jr. of Hansen Jacobson.

Another McGraw signs with PMK*BNC

Author and TV personality Robin McGraw (no relation to Tim – she’s married to Dr. Phil) has signed with PMK*BNC. Last year the two-time New York Times bestselling author launched her eponymous lifestyle brand Robin McGraw Revelation, whose profits partly go toward When Georgia Smiled: The Robin McGraw Foundation. The foundation recently created an app, Aspire News, which curates resources for combating domestic violence.

This is awesome!

“Everything is Awesome” songwriter Shawn Patterson has signed with WME. It’s the first agency for the 20-year veteran, who has composed scores and written songs for projects including Adult Swim’s Robot Chicken (for which he’s received two Annie nominations) before landing his first Academy Award nomination for The Lego Movie’s incredibly catchy tune.

Brothers to Partners

Horror filmmakers The Vicious Brothers (Colin Minihan and Stuart Ortiz) have signed with ICM Partners. Their debut film, Grave Encounters, premiered at Tribeca in 2011 and spawned a sequel the following year. The Brothers’ next film, Extraterrestrial, received its premiere at Tribeca last April and was acquired by IFC Midnight. They continue to be repped by Hansen Jacobson.

It’s Friday… but they got a job. They got s—t to do.

Reality production company Friday TV has signed with CAA. The Stockholm, Sweden-based banner has sold more than 40 formats in more than 70 countries, including NBC’s Minute to Win It and Clash of the Choirs in the United States.

The Tyler Perry of publishing?

Author, publisher and producer Carl Weber has signed with manager Steven Adams of Alta Entertainment. The company will help Weber develop film projects based on original ideas as well as existing IP from his large body of literary work. Fourteen of his 22 novels were New York Times bestsellers, and his Urban Books is the world’s largest African American-owned publishing company, with more than 2,500 titles. Weber has recently adapted several of his novels into self-financed films, including The Preacher’s Son and The Man in 3B, through a seven-picture deal with Tri-Destined Films, which also is producing his original screenplay No More Mr. Nice Guy.  He also is adapting and producing his The Choir Director through his company’s film arm, Urban Books Media.
