EXCLUSIVE: After 17 years as a UTA TV lit and packaging agent and 3 years running Ed Bernero’s ABC Studios-based production company, Rob Kim is taking on a new gig that combines representation and producing. Kim has joined management firm Untitled Entertainment as manager/producer. He will serve as a literary and talent manager, and will also help set up and run the firm’s new television production arm.
