Born and bred in London, NICHOLAS BOGNER survived the American School in London (ASL) which destroyed his West London accent, plus several British schools that were oddly charmed by his strange American accent. “O” Levels and “A” levels (older than you thought) propelled him to go to Los Angeles and attend UCLA where he studied English Literature.
Since then, Bogner has had a series of positions in all different aspects of the entertainment industry from being a screenwriter (two produced credits) to running development for Tom Cruise and Paula Wagner. He still has a lifetime confidentiality agreement, so there are no secrets to share (or are there)?
As a literary manager, Bogner has run the lit branch of Affirmative Entertainment for the last dozen years. Under his stewardship, he has had numerous movies made including Wedding Season for Netflix (Deadline), Infinite Storm for Sony (Variety), Come Play for Amblin and Focus Features and has sold television pilots to just about all of the majors from network to streamers. In addition, many of his writers have been staffed at various levels of successful shows over the years including a supernatural thriller sold to Paramount (Deadline).
Previously, Bogner served as Vice President of Original Programming for TNT. In this capacity, Bogner worked on several high-profile projects including Steven Spielberg’s twelve-hour mini Into the West as well as Stephen King’s Salem’s Lot. Beyond these projects, Bogner shepherded over 15 movies into production.
