ENTERTAINMENT EXECUTIVE EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENTS
If you are approached to work for a studio; network; production company; producer; or any other entertainment entity as an executive, your potential employer will most likely ask you to sign an Entertainment Executive Employment Agreement. There are many contractual provisions in an Entertainment Executive Employment Agreement which generally include, but are not limited to: the term of the Agreement; the compensation you will receive (salary, bonus, stock options; other compensation); the benefits you will receive (health; life insurance; other); vacation and business expenses; what happens to your Entertainment Executive Employment Agreement in the unfortunate case of your death or disability; how your Agreement can be terminated without cause and for cause; and many other provisions. Generally, before an Entertainment Executive Employment Agreement is agreed to by both parties to (you and your employer), there will be a negotiation period to work out all the terms and then there will be a period where your employer will present a draft of your Entertainment Executive Employment Agreement to you and you will have a chance to make comments on it and seek revisions.
