SEATTLE, May 1 (UPI) -- Seattle's Starbucks Corp. has hired the William Morris Agency to suggest music, movies and books the coffee retailer can sell in its shops.

The big Hollywood talent agency is supposed to help make Starbucks an entertainment and "lifestyle" destination, where customers buying lattes can also purchase CDs, DVDs and books, the Los Angeles Times said Monday.

The value of the alliance between Starbucks and the agency was not disclosed.
