That rattling metaphorical sonic boom just heard across Hollywood was Deadline founder Nikki Finke outing the stealth launch by former ICM boss Jeff Berg of his new talent agency, Resolution.
Berg, who last year had a very nasty buyout and departure from the agency he ran for decades, is now busy raiding his competitors for talent and already setting up deals.
As Nikki says, “There hasn’t been a major full-service agency start-up like this since Endeavor was formed in 1995 by four former ICM agents who left Berg et al in a midnight stealth” departure.

This is a big one. We’ll be watching the ramifications closely for months to come, I’m guessing. Oh, and Happy Sunday, Hollywood.
