TheWrap has obtained the internal WME memo announcing the hiring of Dan Aloni, the senior motion picture agent fired by CAA on Wednesday.
Adam Venit, who heads the William Morris Endeavor motion picture department, informed the agency staff on Friday evening in a surprisingly low-key memo, considering such high-profile clients are at stake.
