Abstract:

Several years ago, Everett Weinberger was a brash young Stanford MBA who thought he might like to leave his secure Wall Street job and take a shot at the Hollywood game. After all, others his age had become producers and agents and were living the good life in the fantasy factory. Why couldn't he? After several months and hundreds of interviews and encounters with studio executives, Weinberger found himself running out of money and connections. Forced by necessity to sign up with every temp agency in town, Everett soon became a "power temp" to some of Hollywood's biggest moguls. This position enables him to give the reader a fly-on-the-wall account of what goes on inside the offices and sanctuaries of power producers at Disney, Columbia, and Paramount.

Wannabe is a funny, inside look at one of the world's most bizarre and pretentious societies, and it's all true! It is must reading for anyone who has ever dreamed of working in Hollywood, anyone who has ever suffered as a temp, and anyone who has chafed under the despotism of a petty or irrational boss.
