Talent agent DAVID UNGER has joined THREE SIX ZERO GROUP co-founders MARK GILLESPIE and DEAN WILSON to form THREE SIX ZERO ENTERTAINMENT. UNGER and GILLESPIE will serve as co-CEOs, overseeing offices in LOS ANGELES, NEW YORK and LONDON. The new venture will operate in partnership with JAY Z's entertainment company ROC NATION.
THREE SIX ZERO ENTERTAINMENT will expand the company’s existing music roster to include actors, writers and directors with a focus on the core functions of talent and literary management as well as production (film, television and digital projects). They will also offer financial and branding advisory services to the global entertainment and media industries.
Since 2007, THREE SIX ZERO GROUP has earned a reputation as a leading international music management company whose roster includes CALVIN HARRIS, FRANK OCEAN and DEADMAU5, among others. In 2010, THREE SIX ZERO inked a worldwide partnership with ROC NATION.
One of the current projects in development is an HBO series about the world of electronic music, with CALVIN HARRIS, MARK GILLESPIE, DEAN WILSON, JAMES LASSITER, WILL SMITH and JAY Z producing. THREE SIX ZERO ENTERTAINMENT will continue to develop hybrid projects with talent across diverse disciplines.
“The authenticity of engagement with a young audience has already been well established by THREE SIX ZERO," said UNGER. "We will now expand to meet the need for international talent in the areas of film and television.”
GILLESPIE added, “The phenomenal growth and crossover from international territories and ancillary businesses has transformed the way we service our clients globally. It is a natural fit for us to partner with DAVID.”
“THREE SIX ZERO GROUP is a phenomenal visionary and a groundbreaking partner to ROC NATION," commented ROC NATION co-founder/CEO JAY BROWN. "THREE SIX ZERO ENTERTAINMENT is another extension of their profound creativity and exponential reach into all mediums and all territories. MARK and DEAN and the THREE SIX ZERO family have achieved tremendous success in music and now THREE SIX ZERO ENTERTAINMENT will expand their potential in film and television.”
