Ari Emanuel Considers Raising Money From Facebook Fans For New Friday Night Lights Movie

Ari Emanuel On AllThingsD
Ari Emanuel, an American talent agent and co-CEO of William Morris Endeavor (WME), hit the stage at the D: All Things Digital conference. Emanuel is the epitome of Hollywood. He makes his money by consumers purchasing content starring his clients like Larry David and Aaron Sorkin. This means that he dreads Internet piracy, but believes that censoring the Internet through laws like SOPA and PIPA are a terrible idea. While on stage Emanuel contemplated out loud about how using social media to fund some of the content would be a paradigm shift. For example, he got his hands on the new film script for “Friday Night Lights” and though about the possibilities of setting up a crowd-funding initiative through the 1+ million Fans on Facebook for the show. Emanuel is known as being the basis for the character Ari Gold on “Entourage.” On the show, Gold is known for having a short temper and in the video below, you will see the real Ari unleash it on Joshua Topolsky of The Verge when he tried to compare AT&T and Verizon as being the “road” to a house that was robbed. Emanuel told him to sit down and come up with a better example. Check out the video below.
