Resolution TV Lit Agent Dennis Kim Exits To Become A ManagerEXCLUSIVE: After less than a year heading the TV lit department at Jeff Berg’s Resolution,Dennis Kim has denniskim__120410203729-275x357moved on to being a manager. In the latest of several departures from the newish agency, the former Rothman Brecher Kim partner left Berg’s shop two weeks ago. The vet agent has landed as a partner at Bungalow Media + Entertainment LA office and their Storied Media Group, I’ve learned.

The management/production company was started back in 2013 by former ICM Partners agent Todd Hoffman, who reps Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan and Nebraska writer Bob Nelson among others.Kim’s clients joining him at his new gig include Suits creator-showrunner Aaron Korsh; Copper co-creator/Executive Producer Will Rokos; Bridget Tyler, creator/Co-Executive Producer of the USA pilot Horizon; Tom Scharpling (Monk, The Best Show); Joe Halpin (The Lottery, Hawaii 5-0); Nora and Lilla Zuckerman (Suits, Haven, Human Target); and feature writer Eric Tipton (Valiant One). With high hopes of making big inroads in the lucrative TV lit biz, Resolution made a big deal of gaining Kim last year a year after the agent was made partner at his former employer after 12 years there. With all that and the efforts to build a new agency, this loss surely leaves a big gap at Resolution going forward.

Robert Friedman Launches Company To Help Integrate Media With Marketing

By | Wednesday September 25, 2013 @ 3:53pm PDT

EXCLUSIVE: The new operation’s called Bungalow Media + Entertainment and it aims to build bridges between content creators and marketers looking for creative ways to work together in TV, film, live entertainment, and digital media. “A lot of people talk about multiple platforms, but it’s very difficult to produce a brand or show if you’re in a traditional entertainment company,” Robert Friedman tells me. He has credibility and extensive connections in media and marketing after serving as a top exec at @radicalMedia, Classic Media, AOL, New Line Cinema, and the original development team at MTV. He’ll be joined by Todd Hoffman — a former ICM Partners agent who earlier this week unveiled his management/production company Storied Media Group. Hoffman will be a partner at Bungalow and run its West Coast operations as he continues to represent franchises including The New York Times, 60 Minutes, and New York magazine as well as Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan, Nebraska co-writer Bob Nelson, and Moneyball writer Stan Chervin.
