(NORTH HOLLYWOOD, CA) -- With plans to represent hardcore performers not only in adult -- but mainstream productions as well -- Black Widow Productions President Ric Williams announced Black Widow Talent is about to open for business.
Williams, who owned and operated WQ Talent Management, a mainstream entertainment agency that represented 23 actors and actresses in Hollywood, will provide casting opportunities in mainstream and hardcore projects through Black Widow Talent. With finalization of its state license imminent, Black Widow Talent will be a fully bonded and licensed agency.
"I've been getting a lot of calls recently from my friends in the mainstream asking me for porn stars to audition for commercials and TV and movie roles. I decided that the time was right to take on some talented adult actors and actresses and promote them into the mainstream side," Williams said.
Very few adult agencies, Williams added, are bonded and licensed as required by California state law, and none of them have the knowledge and contacts of his prior experience.
"Few people seem to be aware that in California, only state licensed talent agencies or attorneys can negotiate contracts and book talent legally," he said.
Black Widow Talent also pledges to operate with the high standards of the best talent agencies and ensure only the best service to all producers.
Interested adult performers who would like to discuss representation opportunities can contact Ric at 818-764-5700 or email him at Ric@BWTalent.com.
