Promotion for senior literary agent who joined firm in 1998

Senior literary agent Dennis Kim has been promoted to partner at the The Rothman Brecher Agency, which will change its name on June 1 to Rothman Brecher Kim.

Partners Robb Rothman and Dan Brecher made the announcement Tuesday.

Kim joined Rothman Brecher in 1998 from UTA, where he had been promoted to agent from then-partner Gavin Polone’s desk.

At Rothman Brecher, he represents the creator/showrunner of “Suits” on USA Network, “Supah Ninjas” at Nickelodeon and “Copper,” which is in production and will air this summer for ten episodes for BBC America. Kim was also involved in putting together “In Plain Sight” for USA Network and “The Venture Brothers” for Adult Swim.

“Dennis has impeccable taste and is relentless when it comes to getting material produced and on the air,” Brecher noted. “Three of his current on-air series were developed for networks other than where they ended up.”

Rothman added, “Dennis was making us way too much money so we had to make him a partner.”
