UTA's Swaden joins CAA for alternative TV


UTA reality agent Jonathan Swaden has moved to CAA, joining the agency's alternative TV department.

Swaden's UTA clients included Tim Gunn, the fashion expert; Shauna Minoprio, the executive producer of Bravo's "Top Chef"; Billy Taylor, executive producer of Bravo's "Flipping Out"; Holly Wofford, executive producer of ABC's "Supernanny"; Lenid Rolov, co-executive producer of upcoming CBS series "America's Top Dog"; Andrea Richter, co-executive producer of Spike's "The Ultimate Fighter"; and Bill Hochhauser, co-executive producer of Bravo's "The Millionaire Matchmaker."

Some of Swaden's clients are expected to join him at CAA, sources said. Swaden started at CAA last week.

The move comes on the heels of UTA hiring former CAA head of alternative TV Michael Camacho this month. Camacho was let go by CAA because of conflict-of-interest issues when dealing with agency client Oprah Winfrey.
