LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Former CAA Reality television impresario, Michael Camacho has landed at UTA, bringing many of his clients with him, Variety has reported.
Camacho will join UTA as a partner and will head up the agency's alternative TV department.
According to Variety, the list of clients making the jump to UTA with Camacho include Allison Grodner of "Big Brother", Mike Fleiss of "The Bachelor", Cris Abrego of "Flavor of Love", Jay Blumenfeld and Tony Marsh, Tom Forman of "Kid Nation", R.J. Cutler, David Hurwitz, Jason Carbone, Lisa Levenson of "The Bachelor", Anthony Dominici, Laurie Girion, Mike Nichols and Scott Einziger.
UTA is also reportedly in talks with another CAA reality TV agent Joe LaBracio as well.
As previously reported in CelebrityAccess, Camacho made an abrupt exit from CAA after an Oprah-related brouhaha, with some insiders suggesting that Camacho's departure was precipitated by his efforts to position himself as a candidate to run the Oprah Winfrey branded television network, a deal he helped broker between Oprah's Harpo Productions and Discovery Communications. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
