According to Publishers Lunch, the deal was negotiated by ICM agents Esther Newberg and Eddy Yablans, attorney Kevin Yorn, and manager Eric Gold. DeGeneres has one of the strongest platforms in America with 4,775,359 followers on Twitter, a spot on American Idol, and her own talk show. She’s written a few books, including The Funny Thing Is… and My Point…And I Do Have One.
