Esteemed Talent Agent Blair Taylor Exits Commercial Talent Agency to Launch Expert Focused Taylor Talent Services
Taylor amassed over 6,500 commercial bookings and began focusing on product endorsement and direct response (infomercial)
His roster of hit infomercials includes the Jack Lalanne Juicer, Wolfgang Puck's Pressure Oven, Magic Bullet Juicer, Tempur-Pedic Mattress, Murad Skin Care, Jenny Craig and countless client appearances on HSN and QVC. Having negotiated well over 1,500 long and short form infomercial and direct response contracts with producers and product marketers in the industry, Taylor has been the "go to" resource for talent needs worldwide.
Taylor says, "As consumer access to information increases, there is a heightened need for brand credibility. This responsibility falls onto trusted and respected product experts and spokespeople. The launch of Taylor Talent Services allows me to fully focus and concentrate on the expanding needs of advertisers, marketers and producers as they seek to further legitimize and elevate their products and services to the public."
Prior to Commercial Talent Agency, Taylor spent four years at Abrams Artists Agency. While in the agent training program he began his career representing commercial actors, models and spokespeople in national and international campaigns for the world's most recognizable companies including McDonalds, Coca Cola, Chevy Trucks and Verizon. One of his early and notable negotiations was the placement of former NFL player Isaiah Mustafa in the Old Spice Body Wash international commercial campaign in 2010 – "The Man Your Man Can Smell Like."
Since 2005 he has worked alongside InventHelp to co-produce the "Pitch by the Pros" event that takes place at the annual Electronic Retailing Association international conference bringing together television's top pitch people alongside the inventors of the newest and most innovative products of the year.
He also worked closely with Dr. Phil's production company, Stage 29 Productions, to place renown reconstructive and plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon as co-host of the Emmy® Award-winning, syndicated and international daytime talk show, The Doctors, now in its 11th season.
