Season One | Episode 4- Coming Soon -
Michael Ovitz (cofounder and former President of Creative Artists Agency) was, for a time, the most feared and powerful man in Hollywood. People loved him, people loathed him – but that’s beside the point. I have no interest in moralizing or placing any kind of a value judgement on how Ovitz accomplished his ends – to do so, I believe, would be a complete waste of time. I’m much more interested in trying to understand the principles, strategies and disciplines that allowed him to get there in the first place. He held himself and his team to a ruthlessly high standard and it paid off in spades. Full disclosure – I really admire the guy.
I hopped on the phone with multiple New York Times bestselling author Stephen Singular to analyze Ovitz’s career. Steve has built his own career by writing about crime and dangerous people – Ovitz, many would argue, is no exception. Steve covered Ovitz back in the ’90s in his book Power to Burn: Michael Ovitz and the New Business of Show Business. You can hear a 60 Second Preview of our conversation below – full interview to come.
