Though, the deals the bank closed made Bannon a decent income one of those deals would become so lucky and made Bannon a fortune.

Ted Turner, the founder of Turner Entertainment, was the one with whom the deal was closed but as turner didn's had enough cash so, Bannon decided to waive some of his fees in exchange for some ownership in five TV shows.
One of those shows was 'Seinfeld' which later generated $3.1 billion by 2013, and if Bannon got even 1% then he would've made $31 million on syndication.
