Everybody is looking for an agent these days! Even magazines!
We never really thought about it, but talent agency ICM has been repping the New York Times for years and has since brokered 30 film and TV option deals for their articles.
New York Magazine now wants a piece of the Hollywood action and has signed with the agency as well.
In the deal, the magazine would share revenue and receive credit in any film made from its articles.
Although it just found representation, the magazine isn't a stranger to inspiring major motion pictures from their articles. Saturday Night Fever, Goodfellas, and American Gangster were just a few films that hatched from stories featured in New York Magazine.
Did U know magazines and newspapers were repped by talent agents?
