[6.53 - French Time] She Who Must Be Read, aka our dear Nikki Finke of, and her new recruit the brilliant Nellie Andreeva explain why BBC Worldwide Productions changes talent agencies. reports that BBC Worldwide Productions dropped ICM after taking several meetings with other agencies, and hired CAA. And according to Nikki Finke it's because CAA agreed to represent not just the company but also Mark Thompson, Director-General of the BBC, and John Smith, Chief Executive of BBC Worldwide.

« The reason is that both top execs are convinced they're about to lose their high-powered jobs. I'm told they want CAA to act as their personal head-hunters and find their next executive positions -- hopefully with a media company in the U.S. Of course, that's a whopping conflict of interest » writes Nikki.
