A talent management agency with offices in Detroit, Chicago and Los Angeles has acquired a Michigan-focused competitor and plans to expand its film division following the deal.

Productions Plus Inc. announced Monday it's buying The Talent Shop. Terms weren't released. It will lead to creation of a new company called Productions Plus _ The Talent Shop.

Productions Plus provides talent for auto shows, trade shows, marketing and other events. Owner and chief executive Margery Krevsky will lead the combined company.

Both privately held companies are based in the Detroit suburb of Bingham Farms, where the expanded company will remain.

Michigan has been drawing more moviemakers since generous tax incentives began last year.
