Talent Agency Sues CNBC Anchor Amanda Drury Over Commissions

Legendary Hollywood talent agency William Morris Endeavor has filed a lawsuit against CNBC anchor Amanda Drury over what it says was the failure to pay its commission. THR, Esq. has the details, which stem from a new contract with the network WME secured for Drury in 2010. The anchor dumped WME later that year for another firm.

“Ms. Drury terminated William Morris Endeavor nearly two years ago as a result of its failure to perform even the most basic services that any agency offers to its clients,” said John Rosenberg at Rosenberg & Giger, who represents Drury. “WME’s lawsuit is a desperate effort to extract an unwarranted payment from Ms. Drury, who is fully confident that she will prevail in the court proceedings.”

After the jump, our Media Beat interview with Drury about jumping from CNBC Asia to CNBC US.
