During his five-year WMA stint, Bulka negotiated on behalf of such authors as Dean Koontz, Erich Segal and Mary Higgins Clark.
Bulka will report to NBC exec VP of movies, minis and special events Steve White. “I had the pleasure of dealing with Stephen at the William Morris Agency when he was a literary agent there,” said White. “I feel he’s a class act and he’s a welcome addition to the NBC movie department.”
Prior to WMA, Bulka served as VP of development at Nickelodeon Movies, launching the company’s frosh efforts “Harriet the Spy” and “The Rugrats Movie.”
He worked in a similar capacity at Paramount Pictures, steering such pics as “Addams Family Values,” “Jennifer 8” and “Flesh and Bone.”
