Plot Synopsis

THE AGENT is a one-hour reality series that explores the cutthroat world of sports agents by following four reps as they recruit and sign players from the 2015 National Football League (NFL) draft class. Behind every professional football player is an agent. Their clients make the plays on the field, but they run the game off the field. And if agents really want to make hay, they need to sign the best players when they first leave college and then cultivate a life-long relationship. In the series opener, the agents try to recruit a winning and profitable draft class, kicking things off with a record-setting quarterback and the year's most sought-after running back. The four reps featured on THE AGENT include: Jeff Guerriero, who started his sports agent career in 1997 and has represented more than 100 professional football players and negotiated over 155 NFL contracts since the start of his career; Peter Schaffer, an agent for 28 years, who is currently representing more than 35 players in the NFL, including the Browns' Joe Thomas, the highest paid lineman in NFL history; Sunny Shah, who was a successful investment banker on Wall Street before making a career move, where in 2009 and 2010 he became the youngest agent to represent top 15 picks in back to back years; and Ed Wasielewski, who became a licensed sports agent in 2003 and is currently representing 24 NFL players, including Cody Latimer, his highest drafted player, a 2nd round pick for the Denver Broncos.
On Tuesday, October 6, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT, Esquire premiered the season finale of THE AGENT. In the season ender, "The Pro Football Draft, Part 2," agents guide their players through the final rounds of the draft as the third and final day of the draft begins. Teams make their picks more quickly, as players and agents watch with friends and family. For some players their football dreams finally come true, and for others their hopes of being selected by a team for a huge signing bonus fades. Once the draft is over, free agency begins: Sunny, Jeff, Ed and Peter enter into fierce contract negotiations as they try to place each of their undrafted clients into the best possible situations on NFL teams, for a chance to make a 53-man roster and play professional football.
