It’s becoming an interesting divide on YouTube, which stars go with which Hollywood talent agency. Of course, there are several agencies to pick from in Hollywood, but the race is focused squarely on CAA, William Morris (WME) and UTA — the three major talent companies who seem to be the most invested in grabbing up YouTube stars. And right now, William Morris has shot into the temporary lead with their signing of Rocket Jump Studios.
Rocket Jump, the VFX studio brainchild of Freddie Wong, Matthew Arnold and Brandon Laatsch, is best known for creating major YouTube property Video Game High School. And now they’ve got a new property launching, a series for Hulu called Rocket Jump: The Show.
A behind-the-scenes look at creating videos, the series was just announced by The Hollywood Reporter, who also broke news of William Morris Endeavor’s latest signing.
“We were looking for representation that was creatively and commercially in synch with our core DNA,” Wong said to The Hollywood Reporter. “The team at WME understands where we’re going, and we’re looking forward to taking our company to the next level with them by our side.”
