The story of Hollywood and Creative Artists Agency CAA

We’re taking a trip to Hollywood on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show when we take a peek behind the curtain of the immensely powerful corporation known as Creative Artists Agency. In POWERHOUSE, THE UNTOLD STORY OF HOLLYWOOD’S CREATIVE ARTISTS AGENCY, award-winning journalist James Andrew Miller spins a tale of boundless ambition, ruthless egomania, ceaseless empire building, greed, and personal betrayal, and that’s just the beginning. And in our second half-hour, it’s FOUR BROADS TALKING politics and more with our panel of smart, feisty, broads.

The movies you watch, the TV shows you adore, the concerts and sporting events you attend—behind the curtain of nearly all of these is an immensely powerful corporation known as Creative Artists Agency. Started in 1975, when five bright and brash employees of a creaky William Morris office left to open their own strikingly innovative talent agency, CAA would come to revolutionize the entertainment industry, and over the next several decades its tentacles would spread aggressively beyond film and television into music, advertising, and investment banking. In POWERHOUSE, THE UNTOLD STORY OF HOLLYWOOD’S CREATIVE ARTISTS AGENCY, James Andrew Miller, the co-author of the #1 New York Times bestseller THOSE GUYS HAVE ALL THE FUN: INSIDE THE WORLD OF ESPN and LIVE FROM NEW YORK, who has written for The Washington Post, the New York Times, and Vanity Fair – draws on unprecedented and exclusive access to the men and women who built and battled with CAA, and tells the story of prophetic brilliance, magnificent artistry, singular genius, entrepreneurial courage and above all, daring.

SuzyCallgirlpicturesIn her New York Times bestselling book FAST GIRL, A LIFE SPENT RUNNING FROM MADNESS, Suzy Favor Hamilton bares it all. A natural athlete driven by an insatiable need to win, she became the ultimate track-and-field sweetheart. But success masked the doubt, self-sabotage, and constant anxiety that plagued her. After living in the fast lane as a world-class athlete, Suzy felt normal life in the Midwest to be mind-numbingly dull. Married, the mother of a daughter, it was on a trip to Las Vegas that she found the rush she needed to feel alive. Re-creating herself as a glamorous escort, she recklessly crafted an exciting double life, until she was caught. Her story, in a word, is unbelievable.

A divided America? A country reluctant to go to war? A country turning its back on genocide? The year 2016?

Conventional wisdom dictates that the US entered World War II in retaliation for the bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 8, 1941. Historian Marc Wortman sees it another way. In his new book 1941: FIGHTING THE SHADOW WAR, A DIVIDED AMERICA IN A WORLD AT WAR Wortman compellingly reveals the ways in which America played an increasingly significant and clandestine role in the war in the months and years prior to officially joining the battle. Churchill, Lindbergh, the Roosevelt family, FDR advisor and emissary Harry Hopkins, journalists William Shirer and Philip Johnson, Wortman weaves the smart, suspenseful history that reads like an epic novel.
