William Morris Agency lays off 120


The long-anticipated layoffs at William Morris in advance of its merger with Endeavor have begun.

According to several sources at the two agencies, at least 120 William Morris employees, about 40 of them agents, are being informed today that they are losing their jobs. The television and motion picture departments were both hit particularly hard.

There's no information yet on whether senior agents were included, although scripted TV chief Aaron Kaplan has already left to form his own management/production company.

Insiders said that today's cuts represent the bulk of the expected layoffs before the merger is complete, but some more are still on the way.
