I am NOT a talent agent! IMDbPRO lists me as a talent agent, which I am not. I am a screenwriter, author, journalist, publisher

actually it links Litpub, Ink as your talent company and Sean Lavin as your talent agent, do you know this Sean Lavin?

Yes, but I wish I didn't! He's a total fraud, claimed he personally knew a non-existent VP of development at Searchlight Pictures, Fox's classics division.
I wasted 15 minutes writintg a "spec" script, "All Blood Runs Red," about America's first black combat aviator, Eugene Bullard.
Every waiter and parking valet in El Lay is writing a spec script.
My screenwriting career, see IMDb "Tweakers" feature-length 2007 documentary video, based on my book of the same name (Alyson, 2005).

Looking at your Pro Name page as Frank Sanello (II) and clicking on the Contact tab, I can see that the problem is that you have 3 different Contact items:

1) Employers : This is the item that is causing the problem. It says that you are employed by Litpub, Ink as a Talent Agent, which you are saying is incorrect.

2) Representation : This item indicates the reverse of the previous one. It states that Litpub, Ink is working for you (in the person of Sean Lavin) as your Literary Talent Agent.

3) Direct Contact : While this is not currently causing problems, it is not valid under IMDb regulations. The Submission Guide: Direct Contact specifically states :

  • This section is for recording the personal phone number, fax number, and e-mail address, of the person whose entry this is.

  • Do not enter the person's representation in these fields (i.e. talent agent, manager, legal rep, etc...) - if discovered, representation information will be deleted (or not accepted).

Since this item currently contains Sean Levin's information, not yours, it should be updated or deleted. Since you have listed your own data in your resume, I will assume you wish to update, not delete the info in this, and I will describe how to do that. If my assumption is wrong, simply treat this one in the same way as the Employers item.

You can submit the corrections yourself, if you have IMDb Pro.

Starting from the Contact page I mentioned, click on the yellow Update button near the bottom of the page.

Select Correct / Delete from the dropdown menu beside Employers and again beside Direct Contact.

Click Continue (button near the bottom of the page)

Change the Keep: to Delete in the Action column beside the Employer item.
Change the Keep: to Correct in the Action column beside the Direct Contact item.

Click Check these updates

Enter the explanation for the Employers item, something like : "I am not employed by this company. On the contrary, they are my representatives (and correctly entered as such), so this item needs to be removed."

Change the Phone and the E-mail to your personal data.
Check the box beside provide an explanation to assist in processing this change

Click Recheck these updates

Enter the explanation for the changes; something like : "The current data is actually my representative's information, which is not valid for this type of Contact. I am changing it to my own information."

Click Recheck these updates

Both items should now have a green background. If they don't, make the change(s) indicated by the message(s).

Once the backgrounds are green, click Submit these updates.

The changes will likely take a few days to take effect.

P.S.: I see that you have an law firm listed as a representative in your Resume. You might wish to consider adding a second Representation item for this firm. The company is already listed in IMDb, although the person you list it not yet there.

Thank you very much, David AH!

As you can probably tell, I'm severely computer...disabled. :)

I've already filled out an additional form that said lawyer or legal representation and put kanelawfirm, Brad Kane, in the appropriate fields.
There was no option that I could find to remove Sean Lavin of LITPUB,INK, who is no longer my literary agent.
Dorrie Simmonds in London is my agent at present. I will change that info thanks to your instructions, which didn't appear on IMDbPRO's unhelpful HELP page :)

did you appear in a documentary titled "50 Greatest Plastic Surgery Shockers "?, if so, then it may be wise to merge both pages into one and if not, then it means there is another Frank Sanello out there :)
