From Deadline:

Nearly 90% of all TV shows are packaged by talent agencies, and nearly 80% of those shows are packaged by WME and CAA, according to data collected by the Writers Guild of America West.

In a review of the 2016-2017 television season, WGA West found that 87% of the more than 300 series produced that year were packaged by the agencies, and that “packaging is dominated by WME and CAA,” which accounted for 79% of all the packaged series.

The guild has been holding a series of membership meetings to discuss updating its 42-year-old agreement with the Association of Talent Agents – called the Artists’ Manager Basic Agreement (AMBA) – which the guild says is so outdated it’s left the door open to the growing threat of conflicts of interests on the part of the agencies.
