TV agent Glick opens agency


Two months after exiting ICM, veteran television agent Steve Glick has hung out his own shingle with the formation of the Glick Agency.

After exploring options with established large and midsize agencies, Glick decided to launch his own firm, which opens its doors this week in Santa Monica. He intends to operate as a one-man-band boutique for the near term with several clients he has represented for years, including director-producers Michael Pressman, Bobby Roth, Charles Haid and Robert Markowitz, actor-director Charles S. Dutton and actress Lindsay Frost.

Glick spent 23 years as a top TV agent at WMA before moving to ICM in February 2005 as senior vp and packaging agent. Glick departed ICM in August amid the staff shuffle that followed the agency's acquisition of the Broder Webb Chervin Silbermann Agency (HR 8/14).

In going solo, Glick said he is excited by the prospect of branching out beyond television to represent his core group of director, writer and actor clients in film and other areas. After spending his entire career at two of Hollywood's largest agencies, Glick said he is eager to slow the pace and narrow his focus to a handful of clients he believes in wholeheartedly.

"I want to get back to the agent-client relationship being the only thing that I have to worry about," Glick said. "I don't want to have to leave my passion at the door anymore. I want to listen to the dreams and aspirations of the clients and make them happen."
