While DLT Entertainment Ltd was originally created as an independent production and distribution company, and just as it expanded into the theatre world with the acquisition of The Shaftesbury Theatre, DLT has also been involved in talent representation for a number of years.
DLT Entertainment first became involved in the talent agency business in the 1980’s with an investment in the Peters Fraser and Dunlop Agency. In an association born from PDF's representation of Johnnie Mortimer and Brian Cooke, the writers of Man About The House upon which Three's Company was based upon, this relationship lasted until 2001 when CCS Stellar purchased PFD.
In addition, DLT was one of the original investors of United Agents when it was founded in 2007 with Donald Taffner Jr appointed to the Board. When United Agents changed its corporate structure to a partnership, DLT’s shares were sold back to the firm.
The synergy created by these investments has the potential to create new opportunities for DLT, the agencies, and most importantly the represented talent. All agencies operate independently of DLT, are free to work with any production company, and always with the best interest of their clients at the forefront of any deal.
So it is no surprise that DLT continues to be involved in talent representation through investments in the following companies representing a full range of entertainment talents and skills.
In addition to talent represenation, DLT companies are also major producers and promotors of lIve comedy. Learn more about live performances, audio production, and video production.
