Crossgen signs with Endeavor

Posted:12/08/2003
CrossGen Entertainment, one of the world’s leading publishers of comics and graphic novels, has been signed by Endeavor, widely considered one of the leading agencies in the entertainment industry, for representation in the world of film, television and video games.

The pact adds Endeavor to CrossGen’s Hollywood "A-Team," which includes Branded Entertainment’s president Michael E. Uslan and VP F.J. DeSanto, executive producer of the Batman film franchise, and entertainment counsel, attorney Nancy Newhouse-Porter. Uslan and Porter will continue their work in ushering CrossGen’s properties into other mediums, with Endeavor providing a powerhouse punch of talent and connections that will complete the task of moving CrossGen more firmly into the mass consumer entertainment industry.

Endeavor co-founders Rick Rosen and Ariel Emanuel will be handling CrossGen’s client relationship, along with a team of Endeavor agents from the worlds of film, television and video games.

"CrossGen has some of the most exciting intellectual property in the business today," said the Endeavor partner in a joint statement. "With titles like Sojourn and Way of the Rat, CrossGen has become a leader in the comic book industry. We’re thrilled to be working with them as they expand into television, film and video games."

Mark Alessi, CEO of CrossGen Entertainment, was gratified by Endeavor’s enthusiasm for CrossGen’s comics.

"As we move our stories and characters into other mediums, the focus for us still has to remain the creation of great comics," Alessi said. "Endeavor’s people understand that, and their response to our material shows that every day we work with them. Their people are comics fans and movie fans, and they are committed to helping us bring our stories to life in ways that make sense. They get it, and we’re proud to be with them."

Endeavor--an integrated talent and literary agency that represents some of the most prolific writers, producers, directors and actors worldwide--counts Ben Affleck, Drew Barrymore, Matt Damon, Vin Diesel, Michael Douglas, Diane Lane, Edward Norton, Adam Sandler and Mark Wahlberg among their talent clients and Martin Scorsese, Aaron Sorkin and John Woo among their distinguished writers and directors. Endeavor has 18 returning shows in the prime time television line-up and 13 new shows debuting in the fall or at midseason. Endeavor clients run nearly 40% of network television shows and work on 80% of television real estate. The agency’s television packages include "The West Wing," "Alias," "That ‘70s Show," "Without a Trace," "The Gilmore Girls" and "WWE Smackdown."
