Because Nancy Luciano moved to Lewis and Beal

  • Arlene Thornton's contact (Janet Tscha) isn't listed on the website's staff list. Is she still the best contact person and the website is not up-to-date?
  • Beverly Hecht's contact person is best addressed to Teresa Valente-Dahlquist (this list) or Teresa Dahlquist (agency website)?
  • Commercial Talent website lists Sheila Di Marco as co-head of adult commercial. Maybe she can be considered as additional contact person, along with Neil Kreppel.
  • Info on Jana Luker Agency may be difficult to find using Google. I believe this is the correct info:
    Jana Luker Agency
    1923 1/2 Westwood Blvd, Ste 3
    Los Angeles, CA 90025
    310-441-2822
    310-441-2820 fax
    janalukeragency AT roadrunner DOT com


Good looking out.

Maybe Janet Tscha moved.

Neil Kreppel, Blair Taylor, or Sheila DiMarco are the people to address your stuff to.

Jana Luker's address looks right

Does anyone have any current information on Diverse Talent Group? Are their doors still open? Who are the agents left? Are they still partnered with Breakthrough Star and how is that going? Is T.V. a possibility for Breakthrough Star? All information would be appreciated. And do you know the email address of someone that might have more information on Chris Nassif/Diverse/Breakthrough Star? Thanks

Diverse is NO MORE!

Breakthroughstar.com is a joke and probably will disappear now that Diverse is gone.

Could you please be a little more specific. I have been told that there are still 3 agents at Diverse and more are ready to come aboard. And also that Breakthrough Star is up and running and doing better than ever. And when looking at the website it is still running contests etc. Thanks for your help. Plus, Diverse is in line for a large cash settlement in court soon.

WTF? You're full of crap. Breakthroughstar.com still looks the same when the site first appeared and there have NOT been any new contests since the first contest for rep which happened LAST YEAR.

Also, Robin Nassif who left Diverse is still listed on the site.

Those are all good commercial agencies. I think how you already listed them is right.

This is from the Breakthrough Star website and if you register you can see all the new video submissions. So, it does appear to be very active. I was just wondering who the talent agents are and who is running the program.
Season 2 Dates:

October 7: Last day for submissions
October 28: Top 100
November 18: Top 50
December 16: Top 25 announced(break for the holidays)
January 6: Top 10
January 20: Top 5 announced and invited to live auditions in LA
January 23: Winners presented.

We'll know by next week if this is truly "active" if the top 100 are indeed announced. A schedule posted on the internet doesn't prove the program's vitality.

The contest is a joke. I made a profile, made an audition vid with just a cheap flip cam, and made it past the top 25 (I deleted my profile so don't think you
can identify me).

There were people whom I thought were better actors and people who made full out professionally done films with the contest script who didn't make it far and should have.

There were people who didn't even make an audition video who made the top 50 and even the top 25.

Also, the winner is no longer with Diverse. I ran into him after the controversy.
