Two Named in Universal Studios Review

Davidandgoliath and The Richards Group have been named finalists in the review for Universal Studios’ estimated $30-40 million creative account, sources said.

The contenders, based in Los Angeles and Dallas respectively, now move into a final competitive round, with a decision expected in the next few weeks. Eliminated earlier this month were McKinney & Silver in Raleigh, N.C. and Doner based in Southfield, Mich. Marketing executives at the Orlando, Fla.-based theme parks operator did not return phone calls. Incumbent Messner Vetere Berger McNamee Schmetterer/Euro RSCG in New York is not participating in the review.
