UTA partner joins board of directors

Sures to receive add'l duties at tenpercentery

UTA partner Jay Sures has landed a seat on the tenpercentery’s board of directors.

Sures, who also serves as the agency’s television department co-head, will serve along side existing board members Peter Benedek, Jim Berkus, Gary Cosay, Nick Stevens and Jeremy Zimmer.

Appointment, announced Friday, will give Sures additional management duties at UTA. The board of governors reps the agency’s primary governing body.

Sures continues to work alongside UTA partner and TV department co-head Sue Naegle in running the agency’s television business.

Sures has been with UTA since its inception in 1991, starting his career as co-founder Benedek’s assistant. He was quickly promoted to agent in UTA’s first year.

At the tenpercentery, Sures helped turn UTA into one of the industry’s top TV packagers.

“From the day UTA opened its doors 12 years ago, Jay has demonstrated relentless advocacy and passion for both his clients and the agency,” the UTA board members said in a statement. “It’s the dream of this company that agents can begin in the training program and work their way to the highest ranks of the agency.

“We look forward to Jay’s many contributions on the board for the continued growth and success of UTA.”

UTA’s TV packages include “The Sopranos,” “Six Feet Under,” “CSI,” “Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Drew Carey Show,” “Bernie Mac Show,” “Judging Amy” and “8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter.”

Among this season’s frosh entries, UTA packaged shows including “Joan of Arcadia,” “Las Vegas,” “It’s All Relative,” “I’m With Her,” “Happy Family” and “All About the Andersons.”
