Every so often there’s a Hollywood feeding frenzy for a New York Times “trend” story that captures the momentary zeitgest. Such is the case with the newspaper-of-record’s recent report on the charter members of “Dating A Banker Anonymous” — a support group and blog founded in November to help women dating or married to men in the banking industry cope with the inevitable relationship fallout from all the lousy financial news and related layoffs. Immediately, an NPR commentater opined on air that the NY Times got punk’d. So you won’t be surprised to learn that the “DABA Girls” — Laney Crowell and Megan Petrus — now have signed with United Talent in all areas and will be co-repped in books by Janklow Nesbit out of NYC. (I can sense you’re grinding your teeth already.) It seems UTA partner and board of director Jay Sures was up at 5 AM reading the article and jumped on the DABA website and emailed that he’d like to rep them. (The fact that these were all good-looking gals didn’t hurt, obviously.) They saw the message and vetted Jay through a mutual friend at Lionsgate. Next thing they knew, every agency was chasing them: not just UTA but also CAA, Endeavor, ICM (who reps the NY Times and was really fighting hard), and WMA. But the Daba Girls chose Sures. Now there’s going to be a book, and maybe a movie, and maybe a TV series. (I’m now starting to see the spittle forming around your mouth.)
