Producer Entertainment Group (PEG) today announces that it is acquiring Five Senses Reeling (FSR) to form the most comprehensive queer focused company in entertainment. The new entity, which will maintain the PEG moniker for overall operations as well as FSR for touring only, will offer management, production, branding, merchandising, and live events under one umbrella in the first full-service artist representation business of its kind. FSR will be added to PEG’s portfolio of artist support businesses which includes OUTtv, PEG Records, SERV Vodka and its charitable arm, The PEG Foundation, dba “Drag Isn’t Dangerous.”
Founded in 2011 with the belief that drag artists were worthy of professional representation and career guidance, Producer Entertainment Group has expanded beyond basic management to include recording, production, literary, streaming, and retail opportunities for a wide variety of LGBTQ artists. With offices in Los Angeles, London, Boston and Vancouver, Seattle will be the firm’s newest location as PEG owners Jacob Slane and David Charpentier work together with FSR’s Jason Brotman to integrate the companies for a truly 360 approach to artist management.
“Jacob and David have been invaluable partners on past FSR/PEG produced tours including Trixie and Katya Live, Sibling Rivalry Live the Boulet Brothers’ Dragula tours and more,” Jason Brotman, owner of FSR, remarked on the acquisition. “Our companies and staff already work hand in hand every day to bring the best possible experience to our clients and their fans around the world. After much discussion, Jacob, David, and I felt that a combining of our entities is an organic next step in ensuring top tier service to queer artists who have worked tirelessly to have a global platform.
