(CelebrityAccess News Service) – CAA is adding an office in New York. The agency has signed a long term lease for a 15,000 square foot office space at 21st Street and Fifth Avenue. The office, however, is for the literary, film and television departments only, not music.
George Lane, who recently left the William Morris Agency for CAA, will head up the office as expected. It has not been determined how many agents will staff the office, which is expected to open in late 2003/early 2004.
CAA currently has offices in Beverly Hills, CA and Nashville.–Jane Cohen and Bob Grossweiner
