Started From the Bottom
From mundane chance encounters with celebrities, to the most ludicrous artist riders, Assistants Vs. Agents divulges the not-so-glamorous side of the entertainment industry: the life of assistants.
Slack, Spreadsheets, and Showbiz, Baby!
It’s not everyday that someone receives a request from their boss to deliver 12 crème brûlée flavored Juul pods and a live reptile to their hotel room. But for the assistants in the Hollywood scene, that’s all part of #ADayInTheOffice.
In 2018, an assistant at WME decided to make an Instagram page where they could channel their work-related frustrations into humor. Thus, Assistants Vs. Agents was born.
